Understanding How Workers' Compensation Works
Under Massachusetts workers' compensation law — formerly known as workman's comp — employers must compensate employees who are injured in industrial accidents, construction job site accidents and all other workplace injury circumstances.
Your right to workers' compensation does not depend on who was at fault for your injuries. Even if your own negligence caused your injuries, you are still entitled to benefits.
If you've been injured in the workplace or while doing a work-related errand, your employer may ask you to be evaluated by a doctor of their choosing, but you can see any doctor you want for your medical treatment, and your employer must pay your reasonable medical bills.
If you are unable to go back to work right away, you are entitled to partial lost wages. If you are permanently partially or fully disabled, you are entitled to compensation for your disability.
