Lowell Work Injury
With a population of over 100,000 residents, Lowell is the fourth largest city in Massachusetts. Lowell is commonly referred to as the "Mill City," since it is known the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and a bustling center mills and textile factories. Along with its mills, Lowell is also historically known as the birthplace of actress Bette Davis and author Jack Kerouac. Today, the city is a vibrant commercial, business, educational, recreational and historical center. Lowell is home to both the University of Massachusetts-Lowell and Middlesex Community College. For lovers of the outdoors, the city also offers the biking trails of the Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest, a National Historic Park, paths along the Merrimack and Concord Rivers, and outdoor music festivals during the summer. Finally, located just 40 minutes north-west of Boston and is right on Interstate 495 and near Route 3 and Route 95, making an easy commute to the city for residents.
With bustling commercialism, injuries on the job are bound to occur in Lowell every once in a while. Although the term "work injury" may spark thoughts of construction, law enforcement, and jobs traditionally deemed more dangerous than usual, office environments, restaurants, and retail stores are also a frequent site of injuries (e.g., slip-and-fall accidents). The consequences of work accidents can be devastating, and having a skilled workers' compensation lawyer can be incredibly helpful to your situation. If you have been injured on the job in Lowell, or elsewhere in Massachusetts, you may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits, including payment of medical expenses and lost wages.
Importantly, if you have suffered an accident at work, you may be able to file both a workers' compensation claim and a personal injury claim in order to collect full compensation for your loss. Although workers' compensation may cover some of your medical bills, it will not cover all of your lost wages or recovery costs because workers' compensation will eventually run out. Regardless of the type of accident or your employment status, your employer is responsible for creating a safe work environment. If you have been injured at work, it makes sense to file both a workers' compensation claim and a personal injury claim.
