Cape Cod Workers' Compensation Attorneys
Any on-the-job injury is eligible for workers’ compensation. It could be a workplace accident, a strained back from heavy lifting or joint damage that develops over time. Yet employers and their insurance companies do not always honor the rights of injured workers.
Speak to an attorney at Aiken and Aiken P.C. Personal Injury Attorneys about filing a workers’ comp claim or any problems you have encountered with your benefits. Under Massachusetts workers’ compensation laws, your employer does not file a claim for you and does not have to advise you about all your rights. It is important to seek legal counsel before time runs out on your claim. Any delay could jeopardize your ultimate recovery.
Our law firm represents injured workers on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and surrounding counties of Massachusetts. We have offices in Hyannis, Falmouth and Boston and we offer a free consultation.

- Vocational rehabilitation — Job retraining if you cannot return to the same line of work

We can challenge a denial of benefits, incorrect calculation of wage benefits, a low disability rating or any attempt to force you back to work prematurely or terminate your benefits.
