Burn and Explosion Injuries at Work in Boston
Our workers’ compensation lawyer is well versed in the nuances of workers’ compensation law in Boston, MA. For over 20 years we have dedicated our entire practice to helping individuals suffering from work-related injuries, including those from burns and explosions. At Kantrovitz & Associates, P.C., we understand that burns are painful, traumatic, and of course, require time off work. That is why we fight diligently to protect our clients’ rights while they recover.Burn Complications
Serious burns require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. Burn-related complications are common as the body fights to regenerate tissue and maintain homeostasis. During recovery, the patient often exhibits symptoms of various medical issues, including infection, seizures, sepsis, permanent scarring, difficulty breathing, hives, swelling, shock, loss of mobility, respiratory failure, low blood pressure, kidney failure, and more. These symptoms warrant workers’ compensation as a result of a job-related injury that is this serious.
Massachusetts workers’ compensation law provides benefits to injured workers for job-related injuries, regardless of fault. This system functions as an insurance policy protecting employers and eligible workers. If a fire, electrocution, or chemical spill occurs at work, employees may receive benefits including coverage prescriptions, medical expenses, hospital bills, partial disability benefits, lost income from injury, temporary or permanent disability, vocational training, and more. Boston injured workers may receive a lump-sum payment for permanent scarring or disfigurement in addition to weekly cash benefits. Lump-sum settlements may also be available in place of monthly benefits.
