When a workers' compensation claim runs into resistance

For the past few weeks, our Worcester personal injury law blog has been focusing on the subject of Massachusetts workers injured on the job. We concluded our last post by noting that employers' insurance companies are not always completely accommodating when injured workers file workers' compensation claims. In these situations, a legal professional can be an important advocate on your behalf.

What happens during an OSHA investigation?

Last week, our Worcester personal injury law blog discussed the story of a worker who was injured when a window-washing platform collapsed and fell off the Hancock Tower. We concluded the post -- as we often do with stories related to workers injured on the job -- by noting that an OSHA investigation was underway. But what, our readers may want to know, will such an investigation entail?

Platform falls off skyscraper; window washer injured on the job

It may be one of the most iconic of all dangerous jobs -- washing the windows on a skyscraper. The thought of a tiny worker suspended from a platform on the side of a towering office building can make many Worcester residents reel with vertigo. While there are typically numerous safety precautions in place, a recent incident here in Massachusetts highlighted the risks still involved should an accident occur on this job.

Determining liability and filing a claim after a dog bite

It is not uncommon for residents in Massachusetts to have a pet. With every type of pet an individual or family owns there comes a certain set of responsibilities. This often means caring for the animal, ensuring it is properly fed, sheltered and in good health. In addition to satisfying the needs of the pet, the owner is also required to make the general public safe from harm by their pet.
