Limb Loss in Massachusetts Work Accidents
Call (888) 558-0622 to Speak with Our Medford Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
One of the most catastrophic workplace injuries is limb loss, such as the
loss of a leg, hand, or finger. As soon as the initial shock subsides,
the injured individual will begin an extensive recovery process involving
prosthetics, physical therapy, and often emotional therapy. While some
will regain full physical function and independence, others may be incapable
of working like they once did and could require adaptive equipment in
order to rejoin the workforce.
At Brooks Law, we are committed to recovering your entitled compensation.
This should help cover medical expenses, rehabilitation therapy, prosthetics,
adaptive equipment, and vocational retraining for those who have lost
a limb as a result of amputation. We provide high-quality legal representation
to residents throughout Massachusetts.
How Does Workers’ Compensation Work?
Construction and industrial work is particularly hazardous, and many workplace
dangers can lead to the loss of a limb. In Massachusetts, as in many other
states, the workers’ compensation system sets a specific monetary
value on the loss of body parts.
Victims often receive a lump sum for the loss of a foot, hand, or finger.
In other situations, however, a third party may have contributed to the
workplace accident. If a third party was at fault or played a role in
your limb loss accident, you may be eligible to file a personal injury
claim against that party.
