Protecting Your Workplace Rights
The very nature of your job may impact your physical well-being or have the potential to cause serious accidents. Pursuing compensation for a work-related injury, however, often involves the workers’ compensation system, which has specific rules and timelines for obtaining the benefits you need to recover.
While we at the Law Office of James A. Maniatis do not handle workers’ compensation claims directly, we work with highly experienced Worcester workers’ compensation attorneys who are associated with our firm to ensure our clients receive the full benefit of coverage to which they may be entitled. By working together, our experienced legal team will help you protect your rights and obtain the compensation you deserve after an on-the-job accident.
Experienced Shrewsbury Attorneys for Work-Related Injuries
The Massachusetts workers’ compensation process is highly complex. Many people find themselves working against insurance companies as opposed to working with them. Attorney Paul Durkee will sort through the legal complexities and serve as your advocate against thrifty insurance companies. He represents injured workers from a wide variety of industries, including:
- Construction workers
- Doctors, nurses, and nurses’ aids
- Orderlies and other hospital personnel
- Truck drivers
- Service industry workers such as waiters or waitresses
- Industrial/manufacturing workers
From repetitive stress injuries to serious back or shoulder injuries, we take the necessary steps to recover the compensation you deserve. If your initial workers’ compensation claim was denied, we will also help you appeal the claim and represent you in all hearings to obtain the benefits you need. We regularly work with doctors and medical specialists, as well as other industry experts, to build strong claims that protect your rights.
Third-Party Liability Claims
If someone other than your employer was responsible for your accident — such as an independent contractor or negligent manufacturer of a defective product — lawyer James Maniatis will help you pursue compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering from them. Working in tandem with your workers’ compensation attorney, he will seek the maximum amount of compensation to which you are entitled.
