Workers compensation is a system that provides financial protection to employees who are injured on the job. It’s not just for construction workers, factory workers, and miners anymore. More than ever before, white collar jobs are becoming physical in nature. If you’re at risk of injury because of your profession, it may be worth looking into what benefits come with Massachusetts Workers Compensation Insurance coverage which can cover medical bills and lost wages if something does happen to you while on the job.

  1. Workers Compensation is your legal right
    1. Almost all workers are covered by Workers’ Compensation. You are covered no matter how many hours you work per week or how your employer pays you. You are covered even if you are paid in cash “under the table.”. You are covered even if you are a volunteer or work for no pay, if the injury or illness occurs on the job

1. Not Filing a Police Report

  • Filing a police report is essential in maintaining a strong case. By providing documentation of the accident, the police report allows for an unbiased third-party account of the incident. It legitimizes the claim the victim has, while also providing effectual evidence in comparison to hearsay from either the victim or the plaintiff.

2. Not Seeking Medical Attention

Nearly each and every attorney in Boston that handles personal injury cases offers potential clients a free consultation. This allows a victim of a personal injury accident to interview different attorneys without incurring any out-of-pocket cost. It is an opportunity therefore for the accident victim to get free legal insight as to whether or not he or she has a legitimate claim that is worth pursuing.

But what exactly happens during a free consultation with a Boston personal injury attorney? 

Typically, at the attorney’s office, you’ll meet with either the attorney, or an assistant for the attorney, or even a paralegal for the attorney. The individual who you meet with will begin to ask you some specific background questions about you.

Insurance companies like to play games with innocent injury victims. Don’t fall for their tricks and traps. Here are seven insider secrets insurance adjusters don’t want you to know about. 

  1. When Insurance companies tell you that their offer is final, they are not telling you the truth. Nearly every adjuster can get additional settlement authority from a supervisor to settle a case. 
  2. You do NOT have to sign anything. Never sign something an insurance adjuster sends to you without having it first reviewed by an attorney.

Cuando se trata de reclamaciones por la causa de accidentes, tener cuidado es esencial ya que la decisión equivocada podría destruir tu reclamo. Como abogado que ha estado representando a víctimas de lesiones personales durante casi dos décadas, me he acostumbrado a cómo funciona el proceso en casos como estos, conocidos como los 5 pecados capitales. 

Para empezar, el primer pecado mortal es asumir que la compañía de seguros está de su lado. Las compañías de seguros están en el negocio con el fin de hacer dinero. A menudo, dificultan el pago a las víctimas de lesiones. Las compañías de seguros sólo te tomarán en serio a ti y a tu caso una vez que se muestren pruebas y sea evidente que vas en serio. La mejor manera de hacerlo es contratar a un abogado para que te ayude, suponiendo que necesite uno para su caso. 

El segundo pecado mortal es dar a la compañía de seguros una declaración grabada. Esto debe evitarse siempre, sin embargo, si usted ya ha dado una declaración grabada a la compañía de seguros, podemos ayudar a deshacer cualquier daño que la declaración grabada puede haber causado a su reclamo.

When it comes to accident claims, being careful is essential- and the wrong move could wreck your accident claim. As an attorney who’s been representing personal injury victims for nearly two decades-I’ve become accustomed to how the game works in cases like these, known as the 5 Deadly Sins. 

To begin, the first deadly sin is assuming the insurance company is on your side. Insurance companies are in the business of making money. They will often make it difficult to pay money out to deserving injury victims. Insurance companies will only take you and your case seriously once proof is shown and it’s evident that you mean business. The best way to do this is to hire an attorney to help you, assuming you need one for your case. 

The second deadly sin is giving the insurance company a recorded statement. This should be avoided at all costs, however, if you have already given a recorded statement to the insurance company, we can help undo any damage the recorded statement may have caused to your claim.

Al respecto, cuando se compra un coche o se alquila un apartamento, hay que tener en cuenta muchas cosas, como el seguro, la calidad, el vecindario, etc. Es lo mismo a la hora de contratar a un abogado. Así como es importante contratar al abogado correcto, también es importante no equivocarse de representante. Hay algunas cosas en las que uno se debe fijar cuando está buscando el abogado adecuado. 

Para empezar, ¿tiene el abogado un historial de quejas éticas? Si es así, quizás sea el momento de buscar otro abogado. Hay una gran cantidad de abogados que no tienen ningún cargo disciplinario presentado contra ellos. Siempre, revise el sitio web “’‘ para buscar un abogado que le interese y guste, para representarse. Si él o ella tiene un historial disciplinario manchado, puede ser una señal mala e indicación que debería seguir buscando otro abogado. 

En segundo lugar, ¿le promete el abogado un acuerdo rápido? Eso también puede ser una señal de alarma, no hay duda de que los casos de lesiones personales y de compensación de los trabajadores pueden tomar un tiempo considerable para resolver, a veces el proceso puede tomar muchos meses y a veces incluso años para resolver un caso. Cualquier abogado que le diga lo contrario, no está siendo sincero con usted.

Sadly, and unbelievably, there are lawyers who scour the accident reports from recent car crashes in order to solicit, either on the telephone, letter, or both, potential clients in hopes of drumming up business.  Many lawyers, including myself, look with disfavor on this practice because it gives personal injury lawyers a bad name. 

It is considered improper solicitation so if it happens to you, do not trust that the lawyer attempting to solicit you is an ethical lawyer.
