If you were injured in a mill accident, an industrial accident or other workplace accident in Massachusetts
, it is extremely important to consult an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. Important decisions must be made about your medical care and benefits soon after the workplace injury.
It is an unfortunate fact that you cannot trust the insurance company to tell you the truth about your rights and options under workers' compensation law. Many times, it will try to lull an injured worker into inaction by promising fair treatment, all the while building its case, gathering statements and medical evidence in order to deny the claim for workers' compensation benefits
. Often, insurance companies will not pay the workers' compensation benefits required by law until they are forced to do so through legal proceedings.
