Massachusetts Work Injury Lawyers
Workers' compensation is a type of insurance that provides compensation for employees who are injured in the course of employment. If you suffer from a workplace accident, you cannot bring a lawsuit against your employer, but do have a claim for workers' compensation benefits.
At the Law office of Richard A. Lalime, we can help you file and process your workers' compensation claim. Insurance companies will inevitably try and settle your claim for less than it is worth. Even if you already receive workers' compensation benefits, insurance companies will try to minimize their payments and limit your recovery. This is why it is so important to have an experienced workers' compensation attorney looking out for your best interests.
The benefits available under workers' compensation are different from the damages available in a personal injury lawsuit. State law governs these benefits, defining what is available to injured workers. Some of these benefits include:
- Payment of medical bills
- Vocational rehabilitation

Third-Party Personal Injury Claims
There are situations that arise where you may have both a workers' compensation claim and a third-party personal injury claim. If a third party is found to be responsible for the injuries sustained at work, an employee may be able to recover for pain and suffering as a result of that third party's negligence. For example, if you were injured on a construction site but the cause of the injury did not result from your employer's negligence but a third-party contractor, you may be able to bring a lawsuit for negligence against the third-party contractor. At The Law Office of Richard A. Lalime, we can handle both types of claims for you.
