Our Firm Is A Well Recognized Resource For Injured Workers
Established in 1970, our law firm has long been known for skilled and effective representation of injured employees in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. A former firm attorney, Alfredo Conti, was recently appointed as a judge at the Workers’ Compensation Court. Today, our firm’s workers’ compensation division is headed by attorney John Cascione and managed with the assistance of Stephano Famiglietti.
Our workers’ compensation clients at Coia & Lepore, Ltd., include injured employees in a variety of industries, such as:
- Health care workers
- Labor union members of Local 271, such as pipelayers and other types of construction craft laborers
- Local 1033 workers, such as municipal library assistants, bus monitors, teachers’ aides and clerical workers
- Private industry employees
Why Do Workplace Accidents Happen?
Despite employers’ diligence and improvements in worksite safety rules over the years, accidents and injuries sometimes happen at job sites involving:
- Burn accidents
- Construction site injuries
- Exposure to dangerous or toxic chemicals
- Injuries related to stress at work
- Lifting injuries
- Slip and fall injuries
- Machine injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Scaffolding injuries
- Traffic and delivery injuries
- Death claims from injuries at work
- Dog bite claims
- Occupational diseases
- Disfigurement claims
- Loss of use claims
- Medical only claims
- Post concussive injuries
- Psychiatric injuries
Our lawyers help injured workers navigate all aspects of the workers’ compensation system. Meanwhile, when we review the facts of a workplace accident, we may determine that a worker also has the right to bring a third-party liability injury claim against a person or entity other than their employer. A subcontractor, a delivery van driver or an equipment manufacturer may be responsible for compensating an injured worker if their negligence caused or contributed to a workplace accident.
A workers’ compensation claim and a third-party liability claim are separate legal processes. Through these methods, we help our clients recover financial awards after they have been injured at their workplaces.
What Our Services Mean To Injured Workers Who Qualify For Workers’ Compensation Benefits
We help injured workers throughout the workers’ compensation claim system. We assist and handle the payment of medical bills, weekly indemnity benefits, scarring and loss of use benefits, settlements and other employee entitlements. In contested cases, our workers’ compensation attorneys further represent workers whose claims have been denied or devalued or whose benefits have been terminated prematurely. In some cases, appeals, hearings and trials may become necessary.
Attorney John C. Cascione is the lead attorney in our Workers’ Compensation department. He has more than thirty years of experience litigating all types of claims for injured workers. Additionally, he and attorney Stefano Famiglietti appear at the Workers’ Compensation Court every day on behalf of injured employees.
