Framingham Work Injury
Framingham is located in eastern Massachusetts, approximately halfway between Boston and Worcester. The town is highly accessible by motor vehicle, located on I-90 (the Mass Pike) and near four major highways. Framingham is home to a plethora of office complexes and is commonly considered to have three major business districts: South Framingham, West Framingham, and the “Golden Triangle”—the latter of which borders Natick and shares in its successful retail businesses and office complexes. Framingham also boasts thirteen public schools and a host of private schools of all levels in order to meet the needs of its many families. Thus, through education, retail, and other successful businesses, the town offers substantial employment opportunities to over 68,000 Framingham residents and to out-of-towners who commute daily to the city for work.
Unfortunately, accidents on the job—both small and large scale—happen every now and then. Accidents on the job come in all forms, although injuries more commonly result from slip and fall accidents, accidents while traveling on the job, construction site accidents, and product liability accidents. Injuries can range from mild to severe: minor cuts or lacerations, fractures and broken bones, burns, disfigurement, brain and spinal cord injuries, paralysis, and internal organ damage. By filing a workers’ compensation claim, you may be able to receive disability benefits (lost wages) and compensation for disfigurement (scars) or loss of function (a limb). An injured worker may also be able to file a personal injury claim, which could bolster and extend medical benefits by giving you damages. If you have lost a loved one due to a work accident and believe the loss was due to another party’s negligence, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim.
