New England’s Premier Insurance Defense Firm

What Are Second Injury Fund Recoveries?

Under Massachusetts law, insurers have the opportunity to pursue reimbursement if a worker receives a second injury on the job under certain circumstances. These are profitable, cost-saving petitions, but the law around them is complex. Your business may need assistance to properly pursue recovery.

Tentindo, Kendall, Canniff & Keefe, LLP, has been a leader in Massachusetts Second Injury Fund recoveries for almost a decade. We are a dedicated group of insurance defense attorneys in Boston with a respected regional and national reputation.

Our Team At Work

Attorney John F. Keefe was formerly General Counsel at the Department of Industrial Accidents, where he successfully initiated and completed the overhaul of the Massachusetts Second Injury Fund.

Attorney Mark J. Kelly defended the Second Injury Fund for five years as a Deputy General Counsel and was involved in significant Litigation and Appeals involving the Fund.

Attorney Ryan Schaiberger is responsible for managing TKCK Law continuing efforts to obtain reimbursement for our clients from the Second Injury Fund, administered by the Workers’ Compensation Trust Fund.

Second Injury Fund Screening Services

We are very familiar with the intricate process involved with a second injury fund application. Led by attorney Schaiberger, our attorneys are proactive in identifying other cases where third-party recoveries can be obtained on behalf of our clients. If the submission of a formal petition is appropriate, we immediately notify our clients.

We are available on request to review other cases and determine if any recoupment, reimbursement, or other recovery is feasible. There is no charge for these consultations, which TKCK Law offers as part of our comprehensive service commitment to all of our clients. Any cases that are deemed appropriate for filing are then handled on a contingent fee basis.

Our Goal Is Service

Attorney Schaiberger is also available on request for in-house training seminars or consultations on unique problems, such as formalizing Return-To-Work/Modified Duty Programs for large employers.
