Workers’ compensation claims can arise from the same causes as other personal injury claims such as: car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and unsafe property, to name a few. If you are injured on the job, you need an attorney who has experience in both workers’ compensation claims and cases against people or companies who are not your employer but played a role in causing your injury. Attorney Scott Goldberg has been successfully resolving these cases for over 25 years.
The Massachusetts workers’ compensation law, Chapter 152, is unique. In general, in addition to paying for medical bills, the law provides benefits for temporary total disability, temporary partial disability, and, in some cases, permanent total disability. The timing of reporting your accident and injuries is important, so you want to contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. Attorney Scott Goldberg can assist you in receiving these workers’ compensation benefits – and can protect and pursue your potential other rights, as well.
In addition, if your work-related injury was caused by a person or company who was not your employer, you may have another and separate personal injury case- called a “third party” case. When you have both a workers’ compensation claim and a third party case, it is essential that you have an attorney who can coordinate both cases. If you are not sure whether you have this kind of case, contact Attorney Goldberg for a free consultation. When appropriate, the law firm works with other counsel so that you can receive maximum compensation under all the laws.
