Many occupations present hazards that may endanger the health and well-being of workers, which is why it is important that all workplaces take the proper safety measures to avoid any worksite injuries or fatal accidents. Rhode Island employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance for the purpose of giving injured workers financial security during their recovery, but, oftentimes, claims are denied or the benefits are inadequate. There are often “third party” actions which may provide more complete remedies to injured workers. An injured worker is well advised to consult with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney before filing for benefits.

Client Testimonials

"I am a motor vehicle versus pedestrian, accident survivor. Although struck in a crosswalk outside my clinic. As a physician, I’ve had to deal and negotiate with insurance companies in the healthcare arena my entire career. Consequently, I felt that legal counseling would be the safest and most prudent way to approach this unfortunate circumstance. Having researched the numerous legal offices on the internet, Marasco and Nesselbush had a very strong and positive presence, and I must sincerely and wholeheartedly agree.

The Firm, and my M&N attorney, represented me in the most professional and experienced manner, and with ethics of the highest standards, during a significantly emotional time in my life. My M&N attorney was knowledgeable and compassionate about my case and situation. He came to my home the very day I contacted his law firm, thoroughly explained every detail clearly and distinctly, and honestly answered all of my questions. He was genuine, personal, reliable, and patient, offering not only professional support and responsible legal counsel, but also friendship and guidance during a difficult time and situation in my life. He and his staff have earned my deepest trust and respect. I wholeheartedly recommend Marasco and Nesselbush."

Workplace Injury Liability

In Rhode Island, under most circumstances a worker who files a workers’ compensation claim may not sue their employer for negligence. The workers’ compensation system is in place to cover medical expenses and a portion of lost wages regardless of fault. However, an injured worker may hold third parties, such as contractors, sub-contractors, land owners, negligent drivers, and/or equipment manufacturers, civilly liable for any negligence on their part. Pursuing third party actions may allow for a complete recovery.
