While most workplaces are relatively safe, accidents can and do happen. Situations ranging from slip and falls, repetitive type of injuries, lung disorders, stress-related illnesses, or long-term diseases sustained under toxic or unsafe working conditions are but a few of the circumstances that can lead to workplace injuries and long-term disabilities.
Many Workers' Compensation claims come from back injuries due, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other repetitive motion injuries, assembly line accidents, construction site accidents, equipment failures and malfunctions, exposure to toxic substances, as well as traffic accidents that occur while you are on the job.
At Karns Law Group we can help you with your Workers' Compensation claim in the areas of:
- Rhode Island Workers' Compensation
- Massachusetts Workers' Compensation
- Maritime, Longshore, and Harbor Workers' Compensation
- Third Party Injury Workers' Compensation
In Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and most other states in the US, Workers' Compensation insurance coverage is mandatory for your employer. Employers are obligated to provide clean, safe working environments for employees, and if you are injured while on the job, there is every good reason to expect that you will be eligible to file a claim for Workers' Compensation benefits, regardless of who may be at fault.
Some of the benefits that may be available to you as an injured worker include:
- Weekly payments for lost wages
- Coverage for medical expenses
- Loss of use and permanent injury and scarring compensation
- Vocational rehabilitation

We can offer you Workers' Compensation representation that will allow you to focus on healing, while we handle every aspect and detail of your Rhode Island or Massachusetts Workers' Compensation claim from the time of your injury to the day of settlement, and beyond.
