Greater Boston Workers' Compensation Attorneys
The workers' compensation system in Massachusetts is designed to help injured workers recover monetary benefits for medical bills and lost wages incurred because of on-the-job accidents. Under workers' compensation law, you cannot sue your employer. If a third party caused your accident, however, you may be able to file a third-party liability lawsuit to recover necessary compensation from negligent parties.
It is important to know all of the options you have for recovery and what benefits you are entitled to after an at-work accident. At the law firm of Pulgini & Norton, LLP, our lawyers have more than 40 years of experience handling workers' compensation and third-party liability claims in the Greater Boston area and throughout Massachusetts.

Massachusetts Third-Party Liability Claims Attorneys
There are many instances in which a work-related accident could also involve a third-party claim:
- An automobile, truck or delivery van accident during the scope of employment
- Poor or faulty wiring
- Lack of safety features
- Defective machinery
- Collapsed scaffolding, falls from ladders and others falls from heights
- Violations of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations
- Crane accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents caused by debris
These cases generally involve either defective machinery or tools that are being used by workers or negligence on the part of property owners/developers/contractors, or their employees. It may be possible to collect both workers' compensation and a settlement from a third party.
