If you are injured while on the job, your career, life and other parts of your life face significant disruption. In addition, being injured can mean high medical bills and loss of wages, especially if the injury leaves you unable to continue working. However, the Massachusetts workers' compensation system is there to ensure that you are compensated for your injuries and are able to return to work as soon as possible.
With over 85 years of combined experience representing those injured at work, the attorneys at Ananian & Rodibaugh, PC understand how a work injury negatively affects many aspects of your life. Accordingly, our aim is to ensure that you have access to the medical care and financial support you need in order to continue on with your life.
In Massachusetts, workers' compensation benefits pay for all reasonable and necessary medical treatment that is related to the work injury. In addition to medical expenses, workers are entitled to disability benefits. How much they receive varies depending on the severity of the injury:
In addition to disability benefits, workers that have been disfigured or have lost the use of a body part due to the injury may be able to recover additional benefits. Finally, if the work accident results in the death of the employee, the family is entitled to recover death benefits and burial expenses from the workers' compensation system.
Although eligibility for benefits may seem straightforward, successfully filing for workers' compensation benefits is anything but easy, as the system is quite complex. In order to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of benefits you are entitled to, it is important to consult with a workers' compensation lawyer as soon as possible following the injury.
The attorneys at Ananian & Rodibaugh will thoroughly examine your claim and work to ensure that the claims process goes smoothly, which will help you get the compensation you need without undue delay.
