Under Massachusetts law, workers injured on the job at a construction site, manufacturing facility or other place of business are required to seek compensation for medical care and lost earnings through the Massachusetts Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. Unless you can prove gross and intentional negligence on the part of the employer, workers’ comp is the only recourse for recovering money from your employer.

What many injured workers and families don’t realize, though, is that an injured worker maintains the right to seek additional compensation from any third party that may be held liable for damages. Such third parties can include:

  • Manufacturers of defective or dangerous equipment
  • Property owner who failed to provide a save work environment
  • Negligent subcontractor working on the job site
  • Installation company who set up dangerous scaffolding, construction crane
  • Supervisors held liable for ignoring company policy and state safety regulations
