Andover, Massachusetts Workers Compensation Attorneys
When you’re injured at work, your life can change in an instant. All of a sudden, you’re wondering how you’re going to keep a roof over your head and put groceries on the table. Fortunately, the Workers Compensation system was set up to make sure you’re able to provide for your family even if you’re injured.
However, as many injured workers learn, what is supposed to be an easy process to get the benefits you deserve can quickly become a nightmare. That’s why you need a lawyer who’s not only local, but also experienced. With offices conveniently located in Andover and decades of experience, the lawyers at Marcotte Law Firm are here to help.What Kind of Benefits Are Available?
If you’re hurt at work, the major benefits available are to pay your medical bills and pay you for some of your lost wages. First, the workers compensation insurance company will be responsible for any medical bills that are necessary because of your work injury. This includes doctors visits, therapy, injections, and even surgery. Most workers are also relieved to find out that the insurance company will be responsible to pay these necessary medical bills for as long as you need treatment.
Second, the insurance company will be responsible to pay a portion of your lost wages. This includes temporary total disability benefits for workers who are temporarily not able to work at all. It also includes temporary partial disability benefits for workers who are limited, but still able to work with limitations. For workers who are totally disabled for the rest of their lives, additional benefits are available.Do I Need a Lawyer?
Insurance companies are notorious for trying to get out of paying the benefits that workers need to keep their head above water. They use every trick in the book to take advantage of injured workers. That’s why we always advise injured workers to seek out an attorney. Even if you’re getting all the benefits you deserve now, it’s only a matter of time before the insurance company tries to cut off your benefits before you’re able to go back to work.
We have many clients who consult us while they’re still receiving benefits. We take the time to explain the Workers Compensation system to our clients so they know what to look for as they proceed through the system. We also start to put together the medical records we need so that inevitably when the insurance company cuts your benefits, we have the ammunition needed to file a claim as soon as possible. Finally, even if you think you’re getting all the benefits you deserve, there still might be something you’re not receiving. This includes making sure your weekly or bi-weekly checks are for the right amount.Why Hire Marcotte Law Firm?
