As with the answer to most legal question, it depends. Typically, your employer will not forward your workers' compensation claim to its insurance company until you have been unable to earn full wages for five days, due to an on-the-job injury. However, once those five days have passed, then your employer has seven days to report the situation to its insurance company. These seven days do not include holidays or Sundays. Once the insurance company receives notice of the injury, it then has 14 days to send your first check or deny the claim. If the claim is denied, then the insurance company must state why.

Motorcycle riding can be a great, fun, relaxing way to travel to work, school or to unwind after a hard day. Yet, no matter how fun it might be, it can also be dangerous. Massachusetts' motorists are unaware, negligent, or distracted far too often. Sometimes a failure to yield will cause a car to slam into a motorcycle, or cause a motorcyclist to slam into a car. In other instances, full-size vehicles will change lanes without seeing a motorcycle, causing a serious motorcycle accident.
