Anyone working in Massachusetts is covered by the Massachusetts Worker’s Compensation Act, even if they were not hired in this state. Attorney fees are paid through your worker’s compensation benefits without any out-of-pocket cost to you.

If you or a family member has been injured on the job and you need to speak to a Boston worker’s compensation lawyer, contact the Law Offices of Jeffrey R. Chapdelaine today for a free appointment to discuss your rights.

A Boston worker’s compensation attorney can help protect your rights after a Boston work injury, as well as the financial well-being of you and your family. However, such benefits eventually run out and Massachusetts worker’s compensation claims do not cover future personal injury claim.

In addition to worker’s compensation claims, employees injured in Massachusetts can sometimes file a personal injury claim, which can involve product or premise liability and other claims against an employer, third-party company such as an equipment manufacturer, and even the general contractor or property owner at a job site.

The law requires employers to adequately train employees provide the proper safety equipment and take other measures meant to guard against injury.

Nationwide, more than 4 million work-related injuries were reported to the U.S. Department of Labor, including 235,960 back injuries and 253,440 falls.

In 2008, 61 employees were killed on the job in Massachusetts, according to data provided by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
