Waltham Work Injury
Waltham, in Middlesex County, is located only 10 miles from Boston and has a population of approximately 60,000 people. The city is home to many popular restaurants and retail stores, as well as two major universities, Bentley University and Brandeis University. Waltham-surrounded by the communities of Newton, Belmont, Watertown, Weston, and Lincoln-is known for its terrific walking accessibility and its beautiful Charles River walking path. Along with its walking accessibility, Waltham's accessibility is also bolstered by its proximity to three major roadways: Interstate 90, Interstate 95, and Route 2. Along with its two universities, Waltham's largest private employers include Bank of America, National Grid, Raytheon, Verizon, and Tufts Health Plan. With a plethora of city and private employees, Waltham is bound to be plagued by work accidents every now and then.
Injuries on the job are relatively common in all types of industries, not just fields like construction, law enforcement, transportation, and warehousing. Accidents are also very liable to occur in office environments, restaurants, and retail store. The consequences of accidents on the job can be physically and financially devastating to you and your family, and having a skilled workers' compensation lawyer can be incredibly helpful to your situation. If you have been injured on the job in Waltham, or elsewhere in Massachusetts, you may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits, including payment of medical expenses and lost wages.
Whether you are a construction worker, an office manager, or a restaurant worker, your employer is legally responsible for creating a safe work environment for you and your coworkers. 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. Workers' compensation may pay some of your medical bills, but it will not cover all of your lost wages or recovery costs because since it will ultimately run out. Thus, if you have been injured at work, it makes sense to file both a workers' compensation claim and a personal injury claim.
