Understanding The Claims Process

At The Law Offices of Carolina K. Tumminelli, PLLC, we take pride in guiding people through the workers' compensation claims process. We are skilled in taking on insurance companies. We also work with the Department of Industrial Accidents (DIA), which oversees the workers' compensation system in Massachusetts, and the Workers' Compensation Division of the New Hampshire Department of Labor (DOL).

Step One: Report The Work Injury And Contact A Lawyer

As soon as possible, you must report the work accident to your employer. After you do so, we encourage you to contact us. Our Chelmsford-based workers' compensation attorneys will make certain that you understand your rights under the law. We want you to know what workers' compensation benefits you are entitled to. Ideally, your claim will be accepted and you will be given the benefits you need. Unfortunately, that is not always what happens.

What If Your Workers' Compensation Claim Is Denied?

It is not uncommon for workers' compensation claims to be denied. That does not mean the claims are not valid. Workers' compensation insurance companies are businesses, and they work hard to avoid paying claims whenever possible.

Your claim may need to be taken to a hearing at the Massachusetts DIA or at the Workers' Compensation Division of the DOL in New Hampshire, depending on where you live and work. Attorney Carolina K. Tumminelli takes great care in preparing for these hearings, gathering all of the information necessary to present a compelling argument and obtaining the workers' compensation benefits you are entitled to. While we have an impressive record of success at this level, we are prepared to take the matter even further if the need arises.
