Fighting for People Who Have Been Injured at Work
If you have been injured in a workplace accident, you probably know that you are entitled to workers' compensation to pay your medical bills and a portion of your lost wages. In many work accidents however, there may be other sources of compensation. Find out if that is true in your case. Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at the Keches Law Group, P.C.

Our firm has represented workers in the greater Boston area and throughout Massachusetts for more than 20 years. Workers' compensation is an important right — and we help our clients secure that right — but third-party lawsuits can compensate you and your family for pain and suffering and other losses not covered by workers' compensation. We are proud of our lengthy record of settlements and favorable hearing decisions in workers' compensation cases.
We find every source of compensation for your injuries after a work accident.
You cannot sue your employer in a work accident but you can pursue a worker's compensation claim. And, if the accident was caused by someone else — a third party — you may have a lawsuit against that person or business. A third-party claim would be in addition to workers' compensation. For example:
- A defective scaffolding or ladder can cause a dangerous fall — and may be the fault of the manufacturer or supplier.
- If a subcontractor left an unprotected hole on a work site or left debris that caused a fall, a worker who stepped into the hole or tripped on the debris may have a claim.
- Did a supplier stack merchandise in a dangerous manner? Did unsecured building materials fall and injure a worker? This could be a third-party injury claim.
- In an on-the-job car accident or truck accident, there may be a claim against the person who caused the accident.
