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
As soon as possible, you must report the work accident to your employer. Without documentation of you reporting the injury, it will be more difficult to prove your claim. By telling your employer and having the details of the incident documented, you lay the groundwork for the workers’ compensation claims process to move forward.
Step Two: Contact A Lawyer
After you have reported the injury, 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 receive. Our firm can help you feel confident going to see a doctor, knowing what to ask, knowing what to expect and obtaining the paperwork you need.
Once we have reviewed your claim, we can determine how best to proceed, whether we file or not. Ideally, after filing, your claim will be accepted and you will be given the benefits you need. Unfortunately, that is not always what happens. Our firm also assists in situations whereclaims are denied and may need to be appealed.
