Workers' Compensation

At Ellis & Shafran we know how vital it is that injured employees receive proper medical treatment and continue to get paid for injuries sustained on the job. We represent all types of employees seeking to obtain workers’ compensation – from managers to construction workers.

If you are hurt at work or are suffering from a work related illness, we can help you with every aspect of your claim from beginning to end.

Whether you are pursuing your claim within the Department of Industrial Accidents or are defending against an insurance company attempting to terminate or reduce your benefits, we can help.

Workers’ compensation is intended to guarantee certain benefits to workers who are injured on the job. In Massachusetts, workers compensation benefits may include (but are not limited to) coverage of medical expenses, disability payments, 60% of your average income (or potentially greater), compensation for permanent scarring or disfigurement, and compensation for loss of function.

Receiving benefits you are owed can be difficult and going to bat against employers and large insurance companies can be daunting. Our experienced attorneys at Ellis & Shafran can provide clarity and guidance throughout every step of the process.
