Follow These Important Steps After Being Injured in a Workplace Accident in Massachusetts

Okay...so you are probably wondering why we’re in this hospital room.

Well. You see Edward - that’s Edward...ah….wave Edward. Edward slipped on the job yesterday and injured his leg. Don’t worry Edward this happens to the best of us.

But, Edward can’t return to work for a while and is afraid that he will lose time on the job with medical bills piling up.

Not to worry Edward, we’ve got your covered. The legal team at Mahaney & Pappas, LLP specializes in Massachusetts Workers Compensation.

It’s important to seek immediate medical attention right away when you are injured on the job. Failure to do so gives the employer's insurance company a reason to doubt your story, deny a claim and not pay your medical bills.

You should also report your work related accident and injury to your employer right away! This is very critical to ensure your Workers' Compensation coverage is not placed in jeopardy. Insurance companies examine the timing-of-events closely to decide whether to pay benefits. Not reporting the work accident right away may hurt your claim.

You should then seek legal advice from an experienced Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation Attorney.

That’s where we come in. Yep! Listen, most insurance companies will ask you to sign documents that you don’t understand and may pay you less compensation than you deserve. That’s not fair. Don’t rely on the insurance company to make sure you are getting what you deserve.

With over 35 years serving the needs of injured workers, let us protect your rights to compensation for work related injuries. Now look at Edward.
