Workplace injuries can cause financial calamity. Injured people face immediate questions including, “who will pay my medical bills?” and “how will I pay my rent or mortgage and other bills when I can’t work?” Workers compensation insurance provides coverage for: (1) medical bills; (2) lost earnings; and (3) visible scarring and loss of function of a body part such as when an injured worker has knee surgery after which their knee does not fully recover to the condition it was in before the accident. I will work aggressively to get you your benefits. In some cases, the claim of a worker with on-going disability is settled on a “lump sum” basis. The insurance company agrees to a settlement in exchange for the injured worker agreeing to give up the right to collect weekly lost earnings benefits.
I have worked as an attorney in Massachusetts & New Hampshire for 16 years and have a track record of success handling workers compensation cases in both States, including winning a case appealed to the New Hampshire Supreme Court. Often, injured workers are surprised to learn that their employer and/or their employer’s workers compensation insurer contest workplace injuries. The financial interests of employers and their insurers are served by denying and contesting claims. It is critical to consult with a qualified attorney immediately following a workplace accident. I do not charge a fee to meet with me or discuss a case by telephone – consultations are free. Legal fees in both States are set by law and are relatively low.
