Work-Related Injuries: Determining Workers Compensation Eligibility


If you are injured while working at your job in Massachusetts, it is important to know what your rights are. You may be entitled to workers compensation depending on the situation.

To be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, you must show that you have an illness or injury that arises out of and in the course of your employment.
