Quincy Work Injury
Quincy, located in Norfolk County, has incredibly rich historical roots. Its thriving history and flourishing businesses employ numerous residents and other Massachusetts citizens. Sometimes referred to as the "City of Presidents," Quincy is the well-known birthplace of historical figures John Adams, John Quincy Adams, and John Hancock. Today, Quincy is home to historic buildings, a beautiful marina, Victorian-era homes, and brick sidewalks built in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Tourists can take advantage of several historical sites, including the Adams National Historical Park, the Quincy Historical Society, the U.S. Naval Shipbuilding Museum, the Granite Railway, and several other statutes and monuments. Quincy also offers ample opportunities for lovers of water and outdoor activities like fishing, boating, golfing, hiking, swimming, or waterfront dining. Despite its beauty and history, Quincy's old construction, heavy traffic and population, and increased commercialism make the city somewhat hectic and can sometimes lead to work accidents involving residents and visitors.
Injuries on the job are relatively common, particularly in more dangerous job fields like construction, but also in office environments, restaurants, and other industries not typically considered "dangerous." Moreover, the consequences of such accidents can be personally devastating, and having a skilled workers' compensation lawyer can be incredibly helpful to your situation. If you have been injured on the job in Quincy, or elsewhere in Massachusetts, you may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits, including payment of medical expenses and lost wages.
If you have suffered an accident at work, sometimes you can file both a workers' compensation claim and a personal injury (third party) claim in order to collect full compensation for your loss. Although workers' compensation may pay some of your medical bills, it is important to note that 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.
