When you are injured in a work-related accident, your entire livelihood is at stake. You may be forced to stop working temporarily or permanently. Your injuries may require medical treatment, surgery, or ongoing medical care. In any other type of accident, you would be capable of recovering compensation for your injuries and losses from the responsible party. However, when the responsible party happens to be your employer, they are immune to suit. The law allows this immunity by requiring your employer to obtain workers’ compensation insurance, which covers a percentage of your lost wages and reasonable and necessary medical expenses related to your on-the-job injury.
THE KAPLAN/BOND GROUP is a Boston-based injury law firm focused on protecting the rights and financial interests of injured workers in New England. Our attorneys have a comprehensive understanding of workers’ compensation and personal injury law. When you hire our law firm, we are on your side fighting for your interests. Our workers’ compensation attorneys assist workers in maximizing their workers’ compensation benefits and challenging any attempts to terminate your benefits early.
Although your employer cannot be sued, you may have a third party negligence claim against someone else for your work-related injuries. If someone other than your employer caused or contributed to the accident, you can collect workers’ compensation benefits AND recover compensation for your personal injury from the negligent individual or business.
Whether you have been injured in an on-the-job car accident, an office accident, or a construction accident, our attorneys are available to answer your questions and help you recover the benefits and compensation that you are entitled to.
