Injured Construction

Why Do Injured Construction Lawyers Need a Lawyer to Get Workers’ Comp?

Under Massachusetts law, employers are required to carry workers’ compensation benefits for their employees and contract workers. In return for providing wage loss benefits in the event of an injury, the injured worker agrees that no further liability will be placed on the employer. Construction project sites are among the most dangerous workplaces in America. Often, a negligent equipment manufacture, the property manager or even a careless subcontractor on site may be held liable for additional damages above the category of workers’ comp wage loss benefits you are entitled to.

By hiring an experienced workers’ compensation and personal injury trial law firm, we are able to guide you through the complex Massachusetts workers’ compensation system and aggressively pursue a maximum claim against a negligent third party.

Contractors Don’t Always Obey Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation Laws

Under state law, building contractors are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance for employees and some categories of independent contractors under their employ. Many injured builders are surprised to learn that their contractor does not cover them or fires them for filing a claim. If you are having difficulty with your employer or contractor, talk to us right away. We know the law, and we hold employers to it.
