Workers' compensation for disfigurement, loss of functions

No one expects to be injured on the job, but it nonetheless happens. And it happens a lot.

Foregoing a wage for an extended period of time can rock a family's financial foundation, oftentimes causing them to struggle to make ends meet.

Workers have a number of rights with regard to safety

For many Massachusetts residents, much of their day is spent at work. Regardless of one's profession, certain dangers are posed.

However, as mentioned last week, it is critical that Massachusetts residents do not enter into conciliation without fully knowing your legal rights and the amount of compensation to which you are entitled.
