What is workers’ compensation in Massachusetts?
Because almost all Massachusetts employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, Massachusetts workers who are injured on the job are entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits to help pay for lost wages and medical expenses. If you have been hurt at work, it is important to contact a workers’ compensation attorney.
Do I get workers’ compensation in Fall River or Bristol County?
The majority of MA employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, including those in the Fall River area. The town you work in does not factor into your workers’ compensation, the company that you work for is what it depends on.

How much are attorney’s fees for a Fall River workers’ compensation case?
When you’re dealing with compensation cases, it means that a steady paycheck may be on hold for a while, which can make it incredibly difficult for you to even think about paying an additional bill. In workers’ compensation cases, you do not pay attorney’s fees. Those fees are paid by the insurance providers in cases where the employee is granted benefits. If there is a lump sum settlement, the legal fee is a percentage of the settlement.
What type of incidents give you the right for the payment of damages?

The labor intensive work from the industrial and mill jobs common in the Fall River area are more likely to cause an injury. If you are injured during your job, and you aren’t able to work for a while, you have the right to payment from your employer in return for the pain, suffering, missed wages, or medical bills necessary to take care of your injury.
