Tyngsborough, Massachusetts Workers Compensation Lawyers
Originally settled in 1661, Tyngsborough, Massachusetts has become a destination community for those looking to raise a family. Conveniently located between Lowell and Nashua, Tyngsborough is located on the Route 3 corridor. This makes it attractive for businesses who are looking to attract workers, while also attractive for commuters who work in surrounding communities.
Though Tyngsborough has certainly fostered a 21st century economy, it still maintains its roots. Case in point is the many farms, over a dozen, that still operate in town. At the same time, Tyngsborough has a 15% year-over-year business growth rate, which has brought a diverse business base to the town. This includes manufacturing, pet sitting, and even multiple sports and recreational facilities.
Unfortunately, no matter whether you work in farming, manufacturing, or at a roller rink, injuries are something that many workers will have to deal with at one time or another. Luckily, many of these injuries are relatively minor. The employee will end up having to miss a few hours, or maybe a few days, or work, and then be back to their old selves. On the other hand, some workers are injured more severely, necessitating medical care, doctors visits, and weeks, if not months or years, out of work.Workers Compensation Is There to Help
The Workers Compensation system was set up so that if a worker is injured on the job, they’re not left out to dry. This insurance is meant to cover medical bills and lost wages, along with a few other types of miscellaneous costs that arise during the process.
- Medical Bills: Workers Compensation insurance will cover all medical bills that are related to your work injury. This is all-encompassing coverage, even though insurance companies will often fight to deny coverage for certain treatment. That is because this is coverage that lasts forever. There is no limit on how long the insurance company must cover your medical care.
- Lost Wages: Depending on if you are totally or partially disabled, there are multiple types of wage benefits to cover you when you’re unable to work. If you can’t work at all, the insurance company will pay you 60% of your average weekly wage. If you have to work less and therefore earn less, the insurance company will pay you 60% of the difference.
