Going to work every day shouldn’t be a big deal. It should simply be a means to contribute to society in a meaningful way and provide for yourself and your family. Yet, if you are like many Massachusetts residents, then you know that your work life isn’t always so carefree. In fact, for many workers in our state, they go to work every day knowing that their well-being is on the line. Others may find themselves in this position but not even know it until something tragic happens to them.
If you have been injured on the job, then you likely know the financial challenges that can be thrust upon an injured worker. Unexpected medical expenses can certainly take a toll, but being knocked out of work can cause serious financial strain to you and your family. Under these circumstances, you might turn to the workers’ compensation system for help, but you need to ensure that you are doing everything you can to give yourself the best possible chance of success.
Many injured Massachusetts workers turn to a qualified workers’ compensation lawyer. A skilled attorney, like those at the Law Office of Colonna & Doyle, can help gather the necessary documentation and file a thorough and strong initial claim. If one’s claim has already been denied, then we can advise on how best to approach an appeal in a way that is persuasive to those making the determination.
