Workers' Compensation Attorneys In MetroWest

A workplace injury can prevent you from working for a long period of time. Even if you cannot work, you still have to pay your bills. Thankfully, workers' compensation benefits are available to people who were injured in the workplace. Workers' compensation should pay for your medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages. Although receiving workers' compensation should be easy, in fact, it is very often difficult.

If you or a loved one has suffered a workplace injury, hiring a lawyer is a very important step. With 25 years' experience, MetroWest workers' compensation attorney Michael A. Foglia of Foglia & Associates, P.C., heads up a team of skilled, knowledgeable attorneys.

Under Massachusetts law, people who are injured on the job are entitled to the following benefits:

  • Medical benefits: All "adequate and reasonable" medical care caused by your injury. You can also recover mileage costs and prescription costs.
  • Temporary total incapacity benefits: If you cannot work for six or more consecutive days, you will be entitled to receive 60 percent of your gross weekly wage, up to a certain limit.
  • Permanent total incapacity benefits: If you are unable to work due to your workplace injury or illness, you are entitled to two-thirds of your gross weekly wage, up to the statutory limit.
  • Partial incapacity benefits: If your injury prevents you from working at your former job and you are forced to take a lower paying job as a result, you can recover partial incapacity benefits.
  • Loss of function and disfigurement benefits: In cases where an injury causes permanent loss of function to certain body parts, or to scarring and disfigurement to your face, hands or neck, you can receive a one-time cash payment.
