Boston Workers' Compensation Attorneys

Located in the heart of downtown Boston, Carney Law Firm focuses its practice on the representation of those who have suffered workplace injuries. Carney Law Firm has earned a reputation both locally and nationally for its representation of clients in workers’ compensation and personal injury matters, including those arising out of construction site accidents and professional athletics. Carney Law Firm represents injured and disabled people throughout Massachusetts, including the Boston, Lawrence, Lowell, Quincy, Brockton, Taunton, Worcester, Fall River, New Bedford and Cape Cod areas. In addition to workers’ compensation and personal injury law, our attorneys have successfully represented those who have been wrongfully denied Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits.

Work injuries can take a physical, financial and emotional toll on injured workers and their families. Disability from work can cause extreme financial hardship, resulting in unpaid bills and strain on family relationships. To add insult to injury, insurance companies often look for any reason to deny your claim, regardless of how serious your injury may be.


The Boston workers' compensation lawyers at Carney Law Firm understand what injured workers and their families are going through during stressful times. Our reputation as one of Massachusetts’ and Boston’s most respected workers’ compensation and personal injury law firms has been earned by working tirelessly on behalf of our clients and their families to obtain maximum compensation for the harm caused by workplace injuries. Our attorneys pride themselves on the attention to each and every detail we pay to all of our client’s and their cases. Our attorneys are proud of and enjoy the close personal relationships that we are able to establish with our clients and their families in order to put their lives back on track.

While many other law firms get new clients through advertising, most of our clients come from referrals from former satisfied clients and their family members. We also receive many referrals from attorneys who practice in other areas of the law, are aware of our reputation and want to ensure that their clients receive the best possible outcomes and personalized attention that they deserve. We are proud of the reputation we have worked so hard to achieve, and recognize that our reputation is on the line with each and every client we represent.

In addition to the representation of injured workers, our firm has successfully represented those harmed by the negligence of third parties, including:

The Carney Law Firm Difference

Many Massachusetts and Boston workers’ compensation and personal injury law firms are what are referred to as “volume” law firms, operating like factories that churn out hundreds of clients and cases per year. These firms are not able to establish and maintain personal relationships with all of their clients. Clients of those types of law firms often complain that they do not know what is going on with their case and that their lawyer doesn’t return their calls.

Our Boston workers' compensation lawyers are committed to limiting the number of clients they represent in order to ensure that each and every one of our clients and their family members are able to maintain a close, personal relationship with lawyers and staff. Our low case volume strategy allows us to focus the deserving and necessary attention to each of our clients and their case, presenting each case in the most favorable way to insurance companies, judges and juries, and allowing our clients to receive maximum compensation for their injuries. Our commitment to our clients simply cannot be duplicated by other high volume law firms. We pride ourselves on returning calls promptly and fully engaging our clients in the progress of their cases throughout the entire process.

Free Consultations – No attorneys fees unless successful

All of our initial client consultations are free of charge. Our firm handles personal injury and workers’ compensation cases on a contingent fee basis, meaning you do not pay any attorneys fees out of pocket unless and until your case is settled and you are paid. By handling cases on a contingent fee basis, this allows you to hire our attorneys who local professional athletes also turn to when they have suffered a work injury.
