Even if your workplace accident seems straightforward, don't assume that you automatically receive all the money you rightfully deserve for your workplace injury. Your employer might try to claim you hurt yourself outside work. The doctor who examined you might try to minimize your injury. And insurance companies are notorious for denying workplace accident claims. That's why you need us in your corner, fighting for your rights.

“How much is my Boston workplace accident worth?”
In general, you should be paid for all injury-related expenses. What you might not realize is just how many expenses that includes. It’s not just the money you need for bills right after your workplace accident. You should receive compensation for future anticipated expenses as well, including:
- Medical bills, including emergency medical care, surgical procedures, physical therapy and follow-up doctor’s appointments and medical procedures.
- Replacement income if you cannot work while you’re recovering from your work-related injury.
- Future lost income if you cannot return to work or can only work in a reduced capacity due to a permanent disability.
- Pain and suffering
Add all these expenses up and your workplace injury claim could easily be worth thousands of dollars or significantly more. The best way to know just how much money you could be entitled to receive is by talking to a Boston workplace injury attorney at our law firm.
"What should I do if I'm injured on the job in Boston?"
Knowing what to do immediately after a workplace accident can be confusing. But it's critical that you take certain steps right away to protect your health - and your rights. That's why we strongly recommend taking the following steps after most workplace injuries:
- Notify your employer - Tell your boss you as soon as possible you injured yourself on the job. That way, there's no dispute later about whether or not you were hurt at work.
- Seek immediate medical treatment - These step serves two important purposes. By seeing a doctor, you're making sure you get better. You'll also document your injury, just in case your insurance company tries to dispute it.
- Document your injury - The more information you have, the better. Take photographs of the accident scene and your injuries. Write down exactly what happened while everything's fresh in your mind. Every detail matters.
- Talk to witnesses - If someone saw your injury, make sure you get their full name, address and phone number. This is especially important if this person does not work for your company and you might have a hard time locating them later. Witness testimony can make or break your case.
- Contact us - When you have an experienced law firm working for you, you can take an aggressive approach right from the start.
