Working for an employer is something most of us in Massachusetts do on a consistent basis. Because it becomes routine, many of us fail to recognize the inherent dangers in our employment. Yet, all of us are susceptible to workplace injuries. Construction workers are at risk of being struck by cars or falling from unsteady scaffolding, and warehouse workers who perform monotonous tasks may suffer from a repetitive stress injuries. Regardless of how the injury is suffered, those who are injured on the job may be able to seek workers’ compensation to help cover their medical expenses and lost wages.
However, recovering these benefits is not guaranteed. A claim may be denied upon initial inspection, but that doesn’t mean that you have to accept that decision. Instead, you can appeal your claim denial in hopes of recovering the compensation you deserve. But regardless of which step of the process you find yourself, you need to ensure that your strategy is well-though out and backed by the facts and the law.
