If you are injured on the job, speaking with a Worker's Compensation Attorney is essential. One of the main reasons is that the insurance companies defending worker’s compensation claims have increased the resources they devote to defending your claim and limiting/eliminating the exposure of their insured. There is no fee for the in initial consultations with our office. Additionally, if we are successful in obtaining benefits by way of filing a claim at the Department of Industrial Accidents, the Massachusetts Worker's Compensation statute provides the assessment of attorney’s fees and costs against the insurance company which has disputed an employee’s claim.
