New Bedford Work Accident
The city of New Bedford has over 95,000 residents, making it the sixth-largest city in Massachusetts. It was nicknamed the “Whaling City” because in the 19th Century it was the predominant whaling port in the United States. Today, the city of New Bedford is a vibrant costal city. It has a booming economy fueled by the manufacturing and fishing industries. Many of New Bedford’s residents are either fishermen or manufacturers. Whether you work for Maritime International or Titlist, accidents can happen at work. If you have been injured while at work, you will need a New Bedford work injury attorney.
In the fishing and manufacturing industries there are many types of work accidents that can happen. The attorneys at Altman & Altman have decades of experience handling cases in New Bedford and throughout the state of Massachusetts. We have handled work injury cases about defective products, negligence, chemical spills, falling objects, inadequate training on machinery, explosions, slip and falls, wrongful death, and many other types of injuries. There are a range of injuries that can happen if any of these types of accidents happen. Altman & Altman have helped people that have suffered from severe burns, paralysis, internal injuries, disfigurement, loss of limbs, and brain injuries. If you have suffered any type of injury while you were at work it is important that you contact a New Bedford work injury attorney as soon as you can.
There are several things that you should be aware of if you have suffered from an accident at work. You can sometimes file both a worker’s compensation claim and a personal injury claim- third party claim- in order to collect full compensation for your loss. Worker’s compensation may pay for some of your medical bills but it will not cover all of your lost wages or recovery costs because it eventually runs out. No matter what type of accident or employment status you have, your employer is responsible for creating a safe work environment. If you have been injured at work it makes sense to not only file a worker’s compensation claim but also a personal injury claim.
