Are you a worker in the state of Massachusetts? Were you recently injured on the job?
If you answered yes to these questions, you may be able to apply for and receive workers' compensation benefits.
While some people understand the workers' compensation system, such as those who have filed for benefits in the past, others don't know the first thing about moving forward. If you find yourself in this position, it's important to answer the following questions:
-- What is the purpose of workers' compensation?
-- What are the steps that a person needs to take if he or she injured on the job?
-- What will you do if the company's insurance company contacts you?
-- How long is a person able to receive workers' compensation benefits?
-- Is it possible for a claim to be denied?
-- What is the best process to follow in regards to filing an appeal?
-- How long does it take before workers' compensation benefits are paid?
-- What happens after a case is settled?
These are just a few of the more important questions to answer if you find yourself injured and interested in filing for Massachusetts workers' compensation benefits.
