Helping You Navigate the Workers’ Compensation Process
Suffering a work-related injury can be an overwhelming and challenging experience ― often leaving you with many unanswered questions. Will I ever be able to work again? Who is going to cover my medical expenses? How will I provide for my family after losing my income?
At Weigand Law, we understand how difficult and upsetting it can be to suffer an injury or illness due to your job or conditions at your workplace. We want you to know that we are here to answer all of your legal questions, including whether or not you may be entitled to recover compensation for your injury under Massachusetts workers’ compensation laws.

Let the lawyers and dedicated legal professionals at Weigand Law help you obtain the maximum benefits available under Massachusetts workers’ compensation laws, including medical expenses, lost wages, and even mileage reimbursement for trips to and from medical appointments.
Seek Medical Treatment Right Away
The very first thing you should always do after a workplace accident is seek immediate medical attention. Additionally, you should report your work injury to your employer as soon as possible, both verbally and in writing.
Not only do these actions protect your own physical well-being, but they are also necessary to start the workers’ comp process, not to mention that you’ll likely need medical records detailing your work-related injuries in order to collect benefits.
There are countless work injuries that may qualify for workers’ comp benefits, including, but not limited to:
- Burns, cuts, and fractured bones
- Back problems, including hernias and slipped disks
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Loss of limbs
- Illness due to exposure to toxic substances or infectious diseases at work
- Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Any injury that causes disability, either total or partial
- Emotional or psychological injury
