Each year in the United States, thousands of American workers suffer grave injuries, and sometimes even wrongful death, as a result of work-related accidents. Unlike personal injuries that occur outside of work, Massachusetts workers that are injured in the course of their employment are not permitted to pursue a typical Massachusetts personal injury negligence claim against their Massachusetts employers or co-employees. The Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation system is often the exclusive recourse available to Massachusetts workers that are injured in the course of their Massachusetts employment.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed as a result of a Massachusetts workplace accident, you are not alone. Massachusetts work-related accidents are far too common, and they affect Massachusetts residents of all ages, Massachusetts residents in all lines of work, and Massachusetts residents of all ethnic and economic backgrounds.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) statistics show that:

  • Each year, more than four million people in the United States suffer a workplace illness or occupational injury. These injuries occur at a rate of approximately four cases per one hundred full time workers.
  • In the United States, the combination of occupational diseases and work-related injuries add up to over one thousand fatalities each year.
  • More than two million workers are injured on the job each year severely enough so that they are forced to miss work and required to receive ongoing medical care.
  • Work-related injuries, illnesses and deaths cost the nation approximately $155 billion annually.
  • Car crashes are the leading cause of work-related fatalities. They account for approximately 1,300 deaths each year.
  • Construction is one of the most dangerous professions, with an annual rate of fifteen fatalities per 100,000 workers.
  • Healthcare workers account for about six percent of workplace injuries and illnesses.
  • More workplace injures happen at mid-size companies than at any other size business.

What is even more staggering about these statistics is that most workplace injuries are preventable. Only four percent of all workplace accidents nationwide are caused by faulty equipment or other technical issues. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in an accident at a Massachusetts workplace, your legal rights need to be protected.

The expert and highly knowledgeable Massachusetts worker’s compensation attorneys

at our Boston, MA law firm have gained a national reputation in obtaining high settlement awards for our Massachusetts worker’s compensation clients. Massachusetts worker’s compensation damages typically include medical expense reimbursement, lost wages and disability payments. In the event that the Massachusetts worker suffers scars or permanent disfigurement as a result of a Massachusetts accident, there is the possibility that they may be entitled to a lump sum settlement, consisting of a percentage of their average income.

In some severe cases, a Massachusetts worker may be unable to return to his or her previous employment as a result of their injuries. Massachusetts vocational training is available in these instances. Some of the vocational rehabilitation services to which a Massachusetts injured worker may be entitled include: accommodation assistance; assistance with job searching, application and resume services; counseling; ergonomics assessment; interview coaching; labor market surveys; on-the-job training; transferable-skills analysis and testing; tuition payments and wage assessment evaluation.

A number of the Massachusetts worker’s compensation attorneys that are available to our clients through referral agreements have been recognized on both a regional and national scale. Many have been named in The Best Lawyers in America. A number have also been named in the Boston Globe as Boston’s Best Lawyers and in Boston Magazine as Massachusetts Super Lawyers and New England Super Lawyers. In addition to providing superior legal representation, our Massachusetts worker’s compensation attorneys seek to provide superior client service at all times. We promptly return all client phone calls and copy our clients on all correspondence. The Massachusetts worker’s compensation attorneys at our Boston, MA law firm also never act on a client’s behalf without the client’s fully informed consent.

If you or a loved one been the victim of a Massachusetts workplace injury and are prevented from working for five days or more, you are entitled to receive Massachusetts worker’s compensation benefits. Massachusetts worker’s compensation typically entitles the injured victim to medical expense reimbursement. It is important to note that Massachusetts employers are not always protected from liability. If a Massachusetts employer acts in bad faith or is guilty of criminal conduct, Massachusetts employers are not shielded from liability. In these situations, a Massachusetts worker has the ability to file a claim against the Massachusetts employer for an intentional tort. There are various types of Massachusetts intentional tort claims, including intentional infliction of emotional distress, assault and battery, and known exposure to dangerous working conditions. Massachusetts employers are never shielded from liability for acts of discrimination, sexual harassment, property damage or defamation.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of an injury suffered at a Massachusetts worksite or while acting in the capacity as an employee, there is a statue of limitations that limits the amount of time that you can file a worker’s compensation claim. It is critical that you contact one of our expert Massachusetts worker’s compensation attorneys as soon as possible to ensure that no filing deadlines are missed and that all of the necessary evidence is preserved.

A layperson is generally unable to accurately predict whether or not you or your loved one has a meritorious Massachusetts worker’s compensation claim or a third party claim against an individual or entity other than your employer arising out of on the job injuries. It is, therefore, important that you or your loved one call our highly skilled and knowledgeable team of Boston job site injury worker’s compensation attorneys about your work-related injury case as soon as possible at 617-787-3700. Please do not hesitate to call our Boston worker’s compensation benefits lawyer professionals today or email us at info@gilhoylaw.com. If you obtain the help and expert guidance of one of our Boston, MA work site personal injury lawyers, it is likely that your Massachusetts worker’s compensation case or third party claim will settle without you ever having to step into a courtroom or speak with a Massachusetts judge. To recover the highest possible amount of money damages for you in the event that a third party is responsible for your injuries, our Boston, MA job site personal injury lawyers must show that the other party is responsible for your work-related injuries. The other party may have acted intentionally or negligently in causing your injuries at your place of employment and our Boston job site injury lawyers are experts at establishing this.

An intentional act which causes you to sustain an injury while you are working is usually self- explanatory. To show negligence, however, with regard to a personal injury claim, four elements must be proven:

  1. Duty
  2. Breach
  3. Causation
  4. Damages

To demonstrate that the other individual who may be liable for your job site injuries acted negligently, our Boston accident lawyers must first show that the party owed a duty of care to you. There must then be a clear showing by our Boston attorneys that the other party breached the duty of care that was owed, and in doing so, caused you or your loved one to sustain a job related personal injury.

For example, a Massachusetts product manufacturer has a duty to exercise reasonable care while manufacturing a product that you will be using on the job. If the Massachusetts manufacturer fails to exercise reasonable care and creates an unreasonably dangerous product that causes you to be injured during the course of your employment, the product manufacturer will be found to have acted negligently and may be found responsible for your damages and bodily injuries.

Massachusetts workers' compensation lawyers and Massachusetts wrongful death lawyers at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates are well aware that significant time off from work may be necessary to recover from your injuries and that you need to continue to get paid during your recovery period. Our Boston work-related personal injury lawyers have aggressively represented all types of injured Massachusetts employees, including Massachusetts office workers, Massachusetts construction workers, Massachusetts truck drivers, Massachusetts delivery persons and Massachusetts restaurant workers and have helped them fight for the benefits that they are entitled to under Massachusetts law. Our Boston, Massachusetts work injury lawyers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to answer your questions and to provide you with a free, no obligation case evaluation.
