Time Card: I’m Still Hurt But My Boss Wants Me To Come Back To Work
Although no one likes to think about it, hundreds of people are injured at work every day. While some injuries are minor resulting in quick recoveries, other job-related injuries cause long-term and even permanent disabilities. People need time to recover from their work related injuries. Unfortunately, employers often try to pressure an injured worker to return to the job before they are physically ready. If your boss wants you to come back to work while you are still hurt, you need to talk to a Massachusetts workers’ compensation lawyer right away.
Workers’ compensation is a kind of insurance that provides certain benefits to employees injured on the job. Injured workers can be compensated for things like lost wages, medical expenses, mileage, prescriptions, and permanent scarring and disfigurement.
Workers’ compensation laws are designed to get an injured employee compensation without having to litigate all of the legal common law claims and defenses. However, every case is different and Massachusetts workers’ compensation law can be complicated. A Massachusetts workers’ compensation lawyer can ensure that you are treated fairly by the system.
A Massachusetts workers’ compensation attorney can also work with you and your doctor to gather evidence to present a strong case concerning your ability to return to work. Additionally, your attorney can make sure that you are being properly compensated for your injuries while you are recovering. Don’t take chances with your health.
