Massachusetts Workers Compensation Opinion

The family of a CVS Pharmacy clerk who was stabbed to death by a shoplifter cannot pursue wrongful death claim against CVS because a provision of the Massachusetts workers’ compensation law prohibits employees from seeking damages for work-related injuries, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court found this week.

Very sad case but not a surprising outcome as workers’ compensation law is fairly well settled on this issue in most jurisdictions.
