Your Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation insurance is designed to cover all related medical expenses and lost wages resulting from an on-the-job accident. Unfortunately, insurance companies are always looking to pay as little as possible on any injury claim.

How do I know if my Workers’ Compensation claim was denied for unfair reasons?
The state requires all employers to carry Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation insurance on their employees. This insurance provides for medical expenses related to an on-the-job injury, as well as lost wages if you have to miss more than 5 days because of that injury.
Where do I get help with my claim?
If your employers’ Workers’ Compensation insurance company is giving you an unfair settlement or has denied your claim, you may need to contact the Massachusetts Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development (EOLWD).
You also have the right to hire an attorney to help review your case and determine if further legal action needs to be taken in order to obtain the full compensation to which you are entitled. An attorney who specializes in personal injury and Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation claims will be a good choice to help with your case.
