When you need to fight for workers’ compensation

WHO

Workers are the backbone of our economy and the backbone of the American middle class. In Rhode Island, workers have many legal protections and employee rights if they are injured on the job.

It doesn’t matter how or why the worker was injured as Rhode Island’s Workers’ Compensation system is a no fault system. The worker need not show that the employer failed to maintain a safe work environment. Rather, the worker need only prove that his or her injury occurred in the course of employment.

HOW

Essentially, if the worker was injured at work, he or she can receive benefits that cover a percentage of lost wages, in addition to the full cost of medical treatment and some other associated payments in the event of disfigurement and/or loss of function (of a body part).

The no fault Workers’ Compensation system avoids the necessity of proving many elements of a typical lawsuit. Rather, Rhode Island’s Workers’ Compensation system is a wage replacement system, designed to compensate injured workers for their lost wages and other losses, in a quick and efficient manner with as little disruption to their income stream and lifestyle as possible.

WHY

In exchange for a relatively quick and efficient system, the worker gives up the right to file a lawsuit against the employer and is not paid compensation for pain and suffering.

It sounds easy, doesn’t it? Don’t be fooled; the process of filing for Workers’ Compensation benefits can be difficult and complicated. There are real risks: employers will often argue that your problems were pre-existing, that you were not injured at work, or that you are exaggerating the degree of injury or disability. This complicates the claim and can slow down your receipt of replacement income until there is a resolution of these issues.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

a father and mother reading a book to their two children For anyone who is really looking for a team of Attorneys that will fight for you every second of the way, this here is the team you want and need in your corner. Attorney Ryan Kelley and his team helped me through such a difficult time after my accident. The stress of thinking what happens next was lifted off my shoulders.

Communication is key for me, and my M&N team was on point with the level of communication they provided. The get-well cards and flowers after surgery were just a special touch that brightened my day. I wasn’t treated like another number or another case, they really made me feel like family. They really care for you and your wellbeing. Words will never express but I will forever be grateful for all they have done for me. Thank you !!!!!”
