It is an unfortunate fact of life that people can get injured on the job, and workplace injuries might result in everything from lost wages and medical bills to long-term disability and even death. Many who are injured on the job can qualify for workers’ compensation claims, but there are requirements and qualifications that must be met in order for a filed claim to be approved. If you are wondering if you have a basis for a claim in Massachusetts, it would be wise to consider the following points.
Here at The Law Offices of Terrence A. Low and Anthony J. Canata, we strive to reach the timeliest and best possible outcomes for our clients. This means being aware of the details that affect the cases we handle so that we can take the right steps at the appropriate time.
One of our practice areas is long term disability, where we provide assistance to Massachusetts and Connecticut residents claiming benefits under this kind of insurance plan. Most people who have long term disability coverage obtain it from their employers, who provide it to them as a benefit in the same way that they provide health insurance and pension plans. The law that governs employee benefits, including long term disability benefit plans, is the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), a federal law created for the protection of employee benefits.
