RI Workers Compensation Lawyer
If you have suffered an injury while on the job, then you may have a claim for workers’ compensation, sometimes referred to as “work comp.” The Rhode Island workers’ compensation and Massachusetts workers’ compensation systems have been set up by statute to provide assistance for workers injured in the course and scope of their employment. Prompt medical attention and payments are two of the goals of this system.
Sometimes, unfortunately, arguments arise over issues such as the ability to return to work, treatment, and other issues. The work comp laws are complex and the system is administered through a special court. While your employer or union may suggest a work comp lawyer for you, you have the right to a lawyer of your choice. This is your injury and you deserve the most experienced, independent lawyer available. In addition, there are circumstances in which you may have additional claims that arise outside the work comp laws.

I suffered a head injury and fractured rib when an unleashed dog caused a bike accident in Rehoboth, Massachusetts. I also incurred lost wages and medical expenses. Fortunately, I had Mike in my corner to help me with my legal claim. With professionalism and efficiency, he was able to obtain a six figure settlement on my behalf.
