  • Question on Comp Massachusetts

    While at work I cut my leg with a razor knife. It required stitches and
    a tetnus shot at the hospital. My employer did not report my injury and
    told me I have to submit the bill to my insurance or he will get in
    trouble. I think the company should pay my bill.Am I right?

    If this was an on the job injury, it sure sounds like it should have been reported as a WC injury to me. Why did your employer say he would get in trouble?
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

      My boss would get in trouble because he did NOT file an accident report. He said it would cost the store I work in too much money. I don't have the money to pay the medical bill, but I'm afraid if I press the issue I will lose my job.

        They can't retaliate against you for filing a WC claim.
