What does Massachusetts workers' compensation cover?

Teens: Hurt at work? Claim workers' compensation

You're young, and you're at your first job. You got hurt, but you have health insurance, so you feel like you should get it taken care of on your own time.

Unfortunately, the jobs that keep everyone's lives possible are often some of the most dangerous lines of work.

Construction workers at increased risk of suffering TBIs

From working atop ladders and scaffolding to digging in trenches and ditches, in addition to being physically demanding, construction work is also incredibly dangerous. In fact, the construction industry is consistently ranked as being among the top 10 most dangerous professions and falls are by far the leading cause of death and injury among construction workers.

Why you shouldn't ignore that tingling or numbing sensation in your hands

On a daily basis, it's nearly impossible to count the number of times we use our hands. From buttoning up a shirt and grasping the steering wheel to opening a door and typing on a keyboard, people often take the use of their hands for granted. This is a reality that individuals who develop a debilitating condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome know all too well as they experience firsthand how difficult it can be to complete even simple and routine tasks without the full use of their hands and wrists.

Avoiding deadly forklift accidents

Whether you work in a warehouse, on a factory dock or spend your days loading and unloading semi-trucks, driving a forklift is as common a task as packing your lunch. Did you realize, however, that accidents involving forklifts often result in catastrophic or fatal injuries?
