When to Hire a Workers’ Compensation Attorney
In order to pursue legal action for an injury that happened on the job, you’ll need to act within a certain time period known as the statute of limitations. If you wait until this time passes, you can’t file a lawsuit, so you’ll want to act quickly after your injury.
The statute of limitations differs from one state to another. For instance, the statute of limitations for injured employees in Massachusetts may differ from those in Rhode Island or New Hampshire.

What Does a Workers’ Compensation Attorney Do?
Workers who are hurt on the job are usually covered by workers’ compensation insurance benefits. Typically, this pays for medical expenses as well as a portion of your wages until you can get back to work.
For a typical case, a workers’ compensation attorney can make sure you file all the necessary forms, meet deadlines, and gather the evidence needed to support your case.
Your attorneys can also negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and draft any settlement agreements. If there is any disagreement on a suitable settlement, an attorney can represent you at a hearing or trial.
Insurance companies often deny legitimate claims — and they typically have a team of lawyers on their side. You should have an experienced attorney on your side too.
Some cases are more complicated, and it would be in your best interest to have a skilled workers’ compensation attorney fight for you.
Examples of complicated workers’ comp situations may include:
- A third party’s negligence contributed to your workplace injury
- You’ve suffered an injury due to your employer’s deliberate actions
- Your employer either doesn’t have workers’ comp insurance or the insurance isn’t enough to provide compensation for your medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages
This is a complex area of the law, so working with an attorney with experience handling workers’ comp claims can make the legal process much smoother.
