Understanding Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Massachusetts workers’ compensation provides the following benefits for workers who are injured on the job or who suffer from an occupational disease:
- Medical benefits, including compensation for hospital visits, doctor fees, medication, physical therapy and other treatment related to your on-the-job injury
- Wage loss benefits, including temporary total, partial and permanent total disability payments
- Benefits for permanent scarring and disfigurement and loss of function of a body part
- Vocational rehabilitation benefits, including vocational testing, job training and job placement assistance
Unfortunately, it sometimes takes a lawyer’s help to receive all of the benefits you need. Many employers seek to limit or deny workers’ compensation benefits, arguing that the injury was not serious enough to prevent you from working or that it was not work-related.
