If your total disability is permanent you would be entitled to receive 66.67% of your pre-injury wages each week in addition to annual cost of living increases.

If you are partially disabled and able to performed light or restricted duty as a result of your work injury, your weekly benefit will be based on your earning capacity.

Should your weekly benefit be more than you are currently receiving?

The most common issue that arises in a Massachusetts Workers Compensation claim is the extent of disability due to the work injury. How this issue is addressed is crucially important. Your extent of disability determines how much your weekly benefit will be.

Our Workers Compensation Lawyers evaluate your medical evidence, assess your physical limitations due to your work injury, evaluate your work history and demands of your job at the time of injury along with other factors when looking to secure you the maximum weekly benefit the facts of your claim allow.
