Can you appeal a denied Social Security Disability claim?

When Massachusetts residents suffer from an injury, illness or condition that leaves them unable to work, Social Security Disability benefits can be extraordinarily helpful. When applying for disability benefits, it is not a guarantee that the initial application will be approved. Many people are dispirited by this information. However, they should know that an appeal can be effective to get an approval even after the claim was first denied.

Gas employee hit by car might need workers' compensation

In Massachusetts, many workers are required to be in the road to do their jobs. This is true for maintenance workers, sanitation workers, construction employees and gas and energy workers. These people are putting a significant amount of trust in drivers who are passing by that they will adhere to the rules of the road and do everything possible to keep these workers safe. However, there can be accidents and when a worker is hit by a car, it can cause severe, life-changing injuries and death. Workers and their families must not only think about the medical care and treatment, but they must also consider the future of their employment and how they will make ends meet. This is where workers' compensation is critical.

Sometimes, you can sue your employer and get workers' comp, too

Getting hurt at work is a nightmare for a working professional. It can mean time off of work, filling out lengthy accident reports and lost income, to say nothing of the pain and stress of dealing with the injury. Although people in certain professions, like construction or medical care, are at higher risk than others, injuries and illnesses can result from just about any career path or work environment.

How does workers' compensation cover scarring and disfigurement?

In Massachusetts, worker injuries can range from minor to fatal. There are many variables in between and those who have suffered certain types of injuries should understand how workers' compensation addresses the injury and provides them with benefits. For people who have been scarred and suffered a permanent loss of function with disfigurement, it is wise to understand how they can receive benefits for and how long the benefits last.
