A Workers’ Compensation Firm For All Types Of Industries
No matter what you do for a living, you have the right to feel that there is dignity in your work and to trust that if you are injured, you can rely on the safety net of workers’ compensation until you can get back to work. Unfortunately, accidents and injuries happen even when strict safety protocols are followed, and injured workers too often have their claims denied unfairly.
This is where the Law Offices of James F. White, P.C., comes in. We are a firm dedicated to protecting Massachusetts workers from all walks of life who have been hurt on the job. Our workers’ compensation practice is built on our attorney’s 30 years of legal experience and on his childhood experiences growing up in a working-class family. Jim White knows what it is like to rely on a steady paycheck (or a combination of small paychecks), and he wants to help clients claim the benefits they need and deserve.

The workers’ compensation program in Massachusetts is meant to cover injuries that occur on the job, regardless of fault. There are some exceptions to this rule, but most are covered. No matter what type of injury you suffered in a workplace accident, we want to help you explore your legal options.
Is It Worth Hiring An Attorney?
Workers’ compensation cases are taken on contingency, meaning you pay nothing upfront and are not responsible for legal costs unless the attorney helps you recover money. Even then, payments are taken as a portion of the settlement (no more than 20%). In some cases, if you win, the insurance company is required to pay your legal fees.
We obtained a $300,000.00 workers’ compensation benefits settlement for a carpenter who sustained a brain injury from a fall.
You should also know that under workers’ compensation laws, employers are shielded from lawsuits filed by injured employees. Workers’ compensation is the “exclusive remedy,” or the only option you have for financial recovery after a work accident. Therefore, it is critical to ensure that your claim has all the help it can get.
