Haverhill Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
Massachusetts and New Hampshire Lawyers
In their efforts to save money and increase profits, employers and workers’ compensation insurance carriers will contest even the simplest case of workplace injury. If that happens to you, know your rights. Talk to a workers’ compensation lawyer at the Finbury, Sullivan law firm in Haverhill, Massachusetts.
Workers’ compensation was designed to be a no-fault insurance system. People injured at work would not have to prove negligence and employers could not be sued. But now no-fault has been turned into a litigious situation. Employers and their insurers deny, deny, and deny coverage at every stage.
When insurers deny a claim, you need a strong advocate.
The insurer and your employer will often show their doubt by the questions they ask. Did your injury happen at work? Do you really have a disability? Are you really unable to work? And they have more money-saving tactics: delaying treatment or stopping treatment before you have recovered from your job injury. Talk to an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer who knows how to appeal decisions.
Was a third party at fault in your work accident?
Workers’ compensation pays medical bills, lost wages and vocational training, but it does not pay for pain and suffering. If your workplace injury was caused by defective equipment or by a supplier, you may have an additional claim against the manufacturer or vendor.
