What Happens During A Boston Work Injury Lawsuit?
No one ever wants to be involved in an injury at work. These injuries can sometimes be quite serious, leading to missed time from work. Sometimes workers compensation insurance companies pay these victims the benefits they are owed. More than not, they don’t. When they do not, they need to be held accountable in court. That is when courts become involved in these matters. Here is what happens during a Boston work injury lawsuit.
First, it should be noted under Massachusetts law you cannot sue your employer for a work injury. The only way you can sue for injuries sustained at work is if a third-party caused your injuries.
But if the workers’ compensation insurance company refuses to pay the benefits they owe you, then you, your Boston work injury attorney, can file a claim at the Department of Industrial Accidents (DIA).
A claim would need to be filed for a variety of reasons. It may be because the insurance company just flat out refuses to pay your claim and denies it outright by filing a Form 110. Or a claim would need to be filed if they only agree to pay you a portion of the benefits you are owed.
