In Massachusetts there is a 4-year statute of limitations to file a workers’ compensation claim. There are also many other factors that influence workers compensation claims and need to be considered. For example, in order to receive compensation for lost wages, an individual must be out of work for 5 or more days. If you are unable to work you may be able to receive disability benefits equaling 60 percent of your average weekly wage for up to three years. After those three years are exhausted, if you are not permanently disabled, your benefits will then be reduced.
Insurance companies have 180 days to pay an employee for damages without formally accepting liability for your injury. This is referred to as “payment without prejudice.” Anytime before the 180 days expires, insurance companies may stop payment. Its best to consult with a workers compensation attorney before this occurs. Our attorneys can help you understand your rights with all Massachusetts workers compensation claims.
