Navigating The Workers’ Compensation Process
Work-related accidents happen in virtually every industry. From manufacturing and construction to day labor and agriculture, every job has hazards. Even the safest of workplaces isn’t foolproof.
Employees have the right to seek workers’ compensation when they’ve been injured on the job. In Massachusetts, however, the process for pursuing a workers’ comp claim can be complicated. Small mistakes and missed deadlines can jeopardize your right to receive benefits. What’s more, the insurance company won’t be looking out for your interests. For these reasons, it’s important to get help from an experienced lawyer as soon as possible after a work-related injury.
Pay Nothing Out-Of-Pocket For Quality Representation
At the Law Offices of William A. Curry, P.C., we make it easy to get the legal help you need – for absolutely zero cost upfront. We handle workers’ comp cases on a contingency fee basis. If we win your claim and the judge awards benefits, the judge will also award us attorney fees to be paid by the insurance company. Alternatively, if you resolve your claim through a settlement, our fee will simply be a percentage of the settlement. Either way, you won’t have to worry about the financial pressure of hiring a lawyer.
Workers’ comp is complicated, and it may seem like multiple parties – your employer and the insurance company, for example – are against you. We can level the playing field by guiding you through the process.
When Should You Hire A Lawyer?
The earlier we’re involved, the better. Our legal team can help you file an initial claim for benefits and evaluate any personal injury claims you may have against third parties. By putting your best foot forward from the outset, you can avoid the costly and stressful delays that result from a denied claim.
We can also step in if your claim was initially approved, but the insurance company has since modified or terminated your benefits.
