Evaluating Your Workplace Injury Claim
The first step when we take on your case is to review all the details of your accident, including who was at fault. We work tirelessly to gather as much evidence as possible and put it all together to support your claim. If you have already reported the incident to your employer or filed paperwork and they have denied or delayed your claim, we will need to include that as part of your lawsuit.
We may be able to recover damages for:
- Hospital bills
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
Workers' Compensation vs. Third-Party Claims
There are two main types of compensation you may be entitled to after being hurt in the workplace, depending on the circumstances or your accident or injury. Workers' compensation is the main form of compensation that workers can receive if they are hurt on the job. Under workers' compensation laws, you are forbidden from suing your employer for an injury suffered at work. However, if there was a third-party involved – such as a negligent manufacturer or another person who is not your employer – you may be able to file a third-party claim.
During your initial consultation, our workplace injury attorneys in Hingham can review your situation and determine the right path forward. With our team on your side, you will be positioned for success from the very beginning.
