Because almost all Massachusetts employers are required to carry worker’s compensation insurance, Massachusetts workers who are injured on the job are entitled to receive worker’s compensation benefits to help pay for lost wages and medical expenses. If you have been hurt at work, it is important to contact a worker’s compensation attorney, because worker’s compensation insurance companies have little incentive to act in the employee’s favor.
