Employee Awarded Compensation After Suffering Life-Altering Injuries

When factoring in proper compensation for a workers' injuries, it's imperative that you look long-term at how this injury will affect that workers' life.

A Massachusetts jury has awarded $750,000 to a man who suffered severe leg injuries while working for a landscaping business that did not carry worker's compensation insurance.

A lawyer for 52-year-old Jose Hernandez tells The Berkshire Eagle that her client was working for Lenox-based Rick's Complete Lawn and Landscaping Service in February 2015 when he fell from the roof of a building while clearing show.

Hernandez landed on his feet and fractured his heel bone into multiple pieces and now suffers from osteoarthritis in his right ankle.

His lawyer says the injury limits his mobility and he can no longer perform physically demanding work.

An injury suffered at work that causes long-term (and sometimes life-long) problems is a major issue...and workers' compensation laws ensure that these long-term maladies are covered.

This worker was no longer able to work properly...costing him wages...his life forever altered...leading to higher medical bills. All of these factors MUST be considered when figuring out proper and rightful compensation.

If you have been hurt while at work, it's imperative you know your options and rights. An employer will try and do what they can to cut corners & costs...at your expense. No matter how valued of an employee you might be, they will try and make deals with you to accept less than what you're rightfully awarded.
