Our Boston, MA Injured Massachusetts Worker Lawyer Specialists are Experts at Obtaining Massachusetts Vocational Rehabilitation For Our Injured Massachusetts Clients.

The process of rebuilding work skills while recovering from an illness or injury is called vocational rehabilitation. Severe and catastrophic injuries may place long term or permanent limitations on a Massachusetts employee. When this occurs, Massachusetts injured workers may require retraining for a new type of job. Injured Massachusetts workers who require vocational rehabilitation after a Massachusetts job injury or Massachusetts industrial illness are eligible for compensation for this training through Massachusetts workers’ compensation laws.

The amount and types of vocational rehabilitation provided to Massachusetts workers who are injured on the job varies. 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
  • Wage assessment evaluation

The actual vocational rehabilitation benefits to which an injured Massachusetts employee will be entitled are outlined in the company’s workers’ compensation policy and also determined by the employee's specific situation. Massachusetts employees have a responsibility to accept appropriate vocational rehabilitation services. Inherent in this responsibility is the requirement that the Massachusetts employee cooperate with vocational rehabilitation efforts and make an honest attempt to return to some form of suitable employment. If a Massachusetts worker refuses to cooperate with rehabilitation service providers, the Massachusetts workers' compensation insurance carrier may reduce, if not suspend, wage-loss benefits during the time of refusal.

If You Have Been Injured On The Job, You May Be Entitled to Massachusetts Vocational Rehabilitation. Call Our Boston, MA Injured Massachusetts Worker Lawyer Experts 24/7 at 617-787-3700.

Massachusetts employers and their Massachusetts workers' compensation insurance carriers have statutory responsibilities related to vocational rehabilitation. For example, Massachusetts employers cannot deny rehabilitation counseling services to any Massachusetts employee who has injuries that result in a particular amount of lost time from work. Massachusetts vocational rehabilitation policies also mandate that Massachusetts employers offer these services within a specified amount of time, depending on the type of injury sustained.

If you or someone you know was injured or sickened on the job, and is unable to return to work because of an illness or disability, a highly skilled Boston, MA work injury lawyer can consult with you to determine what types of vocational rehabilitation you may be eligible for.

Every day, Massachusetts workers are injured on the job. The injuries that these Massachusetts workers suffer range in severity. If the Massachusetts worker is fortunate, they will sustain short-term injuries that can heal with the appropriate rehabilitation. Often, these injuries include soft-tissue injuries or minor neck and back injuries. In less fortunate circumstances, the Massachusetts worker may sustain permanent injuries, such as traumatic head injuries or broken bones. In the most devastating circumstances, a Massachusetts worker may suffer a wrongful death at a Massachusetts worksite. In these instances, the victim’s family is entitled to seek recovery on behalf of the deceased.
