When someone sustains an injury that prevents them from returning to work, it can be one of the most devastating events in that person’s life. What makes matters worse is that during these times, many people don’t know where to go, or who to talk to. At Troupe Law Office, we have been actively representing victims and their families in these trying moments for over 40 years. Located in Peabody, on the North Shore of Boston, Troupe Law Office specializes in representing employees injured at work, and those who have sustained career ending injuries or illnesses.

With over 40 years of experience in these fields, our office and our attorneys have handled a wide spectrum of cases ranging from simple to complex.
Workers’ Compensation is a no fault insurance system that Employers are required to carry in Massachusetts. It provides financial and medical benefits when an employee sustains an injury at work. Like any insurance policy, the various worker’s compensation insurers go to work immediately to limit their liability. It is important for someone who sustains a work-related injury to talk with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
Social Security Disability is a Federal system that provides benefits to those who have an injury or illness that prevents them from working. Generally, anyone who has an injury of illness that prevents them from working for 1 year or more, or likely will result in disability of a year or more, can potentially qualify for various Social Security benefits. In recent years, we have seen the number of applications increase dramatically, and consequently, we have also seen a sharp increase in the number of denials. It is important to have an experienced attorney representing you throughout this process.
Disability Retirement cases pertain to public employees (those working for cities, towns, states, or municipalities) that are unable to work due to an injury or illness. Most often, these public employees are entitled to various pension benefits administered through their employer. These pension systems include benefits for both work-related and non work-related injuries or illnesses. So long as you have an injury or illness that prevents you from performing the essential duties of your job, you could potentially qualify. Again, it is important to seek an experienced attorney sooner rather than later.
It is very important to note that often times, the days immediately following an injury can play an important role in the outcome of the case. No matter what type of injury you sustain, it is best to speak to an experienced attorney during these early stages of the case. At Troupe Law Office, we offer a free consultation of your potential claim. It costs nothing to speak with us.
