Workers' compensation might help contractor with broken leg

When a construction accident occurs, it is important to think about workers' compensation benefits for medical care, lost wages and the possibility that the person will not be able to do the same work for an extended period of time. For example, according to recent reports, a 69-year-old man who was working on a residential site suffered a broken leg when it he was run over by an excavator. The accident happened at around 10:20 a.m.

When workers in Massachusetts are injured or become ill from the work conditions, it is important to understand how to get workers' compensation benefits. These benefits are integral to covering for lost wages and getting the necessary medical treatment. Oftentimes, people misunderstand certain aspects of the workers' compensation process.

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.

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.

According to recent reports, a construction worker was injured and needed to be flown to a trauma center after an on-the-job accident. The accident occurred shortly before noon. The male worker was taking part in a construction project when a construction trailer crashed into him. The trailer was on a truck and was in the process of being unloaded. Emergency personnel needed to extricate him from the trailers as he was trapped between them. The injured man had been driving one of the trucks to bring the equipment to the site. The accident is believed to have happened when the trailer came loose from its rigging. The man's injuries were reportedly serious. The case is being investigated by local and federal authorities.

What should I know about a lump sum in workers' compensation?

In Massachusetts, workers' compensation benefits can be a complex issue that leaves injured workers wondering how their case will be resolved and when the benefits will commence. After the worker has been hurt or become ill, rather than go through the process of seeking or receiving incremental benefits, some prefer to take a lump sum to settle the case to move forward. When considering this alternative, it is imperative to fully understand all the factors that accompany a lump sum settlement. Before agreeing to anything, it is critical to have legal advice.
