What should I do if I’m at fault for my work injury?

 In Worker Compensation

Accidents happen; sometimes, we may feel responsible for our work injuries. In such a situation, it’s crucial to remember that workers’ compensation laws are specifically designed to provide a safety net for employees, ensuring protection regardless of fault.

Massachusetts law allows workers to receive benefits for work-related injuries, regardless of who is at fault. This means that even if you believe you are at fault for your work injury, you may still be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

It’s essential to report the injury to your employer as soon as possible, regardless of fault. Seeking medical attention and documenting the details of the incident are also crucial steps. However, it’s important to note that the workers’ compensation process can be complex, and your employer’s insurance company may try to minimize your benefits. That’s why your next move should be to consult an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who can help you navigate the process and protect your rights.
