Work Comp Benefits Can Be Hard to Obtain-Let Us Fight For the Settlement You Deserve

Rhode Island and Massachusetts Workers Compensation laws guarantee medical care and lost wages restitution for any on-the-job injuries, illnesses or long-term occupational diseases you may have suffered. Every expense related to your workplace injury should be covered, from ambulance, hospitalization, surgery, prescriptions, physical therapy and bandages to payments to make up for income lost due to temporary or permanent disability. When someone other than your employee is also at fault in your work injury, third-party claims also come under Workmans Comp insurance. Unfortunately, injured workers often come in to our Providence, RI, Fall River and Foxborough, MA offices telling us that they are struggling with the Workers Comp appeal process because their job injury claim was denied. That's where we come in. For over 30 years, we've been successfully defending injured Rhode Island and Massachusetts workers, and we will defend you too.

Experienced Rhode Island and Massachusetts Workers Comp Lawyers Who Fight For Workers' Justice

If you were hurt at work, you are eligible to receive two-thirds of your salary up to the maximum benefit for what is known as total disability, when you can't work anymore due to your job injury case. Partial disability settlements are based upon your wages, ability to work and transferable skills with which you can change careers to a new vocation. Despite Workmans Comp law, injured RI and MA employees are frequently given the run-around by Work Comp insurance adjusters who pressure hurt employees to agree to a "low-ball" offer. Don't sign off on anything until you have spoken with us! There are many reasons to hire a Workers Comp lawyer . With our extensive experience, high success rate and familiarity with the Work Comp process, including appealing denied claims, we can help you get your life back through powerful legal representation.

Don't Accept a Low-Ball Work Comp Settlement Offer-We'll Fight for What You Deserve

The harsh reality is that most initial Work Comp cases are denied and that it takes an aggressive, knowledgeable Workmans Comp attorney to get every penny you have coming to you.

  • type of job injury you suffered
  • evaluation by employer-designated doctors
  • prognosis and recovery period
  • physical therapy needs
  • vocational rehabilitation
  • your attorney's Work Comp expertise
  • whether you can or can't work
  • whether you are temporarily disabled
  • whether you are permanently disabled
  • how your overall quality of life is impacted
