Worcester Third-Party Liability Attorney
When you are injured at work, you are generally covered by state workers’ compensation laws. This means that your employer’s liability for your injuries is statutorily limited. Under Massachusetts law, if an employer’s actions are willful, wanton, reckless or grossly negligent, double compensation is awarded. Although this is a high standard to meet and difficult to prove, it often causes employers to be much more willing to settle fairly. For this aspect of your case, we will refer you to one of many workers’ compensation attorneys whom we frequently work with.
In many cases, especially those involving construction accidents, several parties, including the general contractor, sub-contractors and property owners may share liability for your injury. For example, if you are injured by falling debris dropped by a sub-contractor, you have a personal injury claim, or third-party compensation claim, in addition to a workers’ compensation claim against your employer. In the preparation of third-party liability claims, the Flynn Law Firm uses state-of-the-art investigation, research, and evidence preparation and presentation.
Unfortunately, many people that are injured at work and receive a workers’ compensation award must also file for Social Security Disability benefits. We are also able to handle Social Security Disability claims and appeals.
