Working With An Experienced Lawyer Can Help Streamline Your Workers’ Comp Claim
Are you unable to return to your job because of work-related injuries or illness? Do you have medical and hospital bills?
You may have a right to file a workers’ compensation claim if you are injured during your workday. Your injuries can be physical, mental or emotional disabilities and occupational diseases.
Are you afraid of losing your job if you file for workers’ comp? Many workers do not file for workers’ compensation because they fear they will lose their job if they do so. Your employer cannot fire you for filing a claim.
Your injuries can make it difficult for you to file a claim on your own. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney can answer your questions and make sense of the process for you. At Casartello & Murphy, LLC, we meet with you personally to answer your questions and to help you file a claim for workers’ compensation. Our knowledgeable attorneys have comprehensive experience. We can help you seek the compensation you deserve for your work-related injuries.
If I Work In An Office, Can I Receive Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
Workers’ compensation in Massachusetts covers the full range of industries. While there may be less heavy manufacturing jobs and more service-based jobs such as more medical services, workplace injuries are no less serious. Blue collar and white collar workers suffering from injuries may be eligible for workers’ compensation to cover medical costs, medical equipment, prescriptions, rehabilitation and lost wages without having to prove fault. Call us for a free consultation to review your case if you have on-the-job injuries such as:
- Back injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Elbow injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Knee injuries such as a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
- Lifting injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
If your injuries were due to the negligence of someone else, or due to faulty equipment, our lawyers can help you file a lawsuit to hold a third party responsible for your injuries. Third-party liability lawsuits can provide the additional compensation you need when workers’ compensation alone is not enough.
