Located in Norfolk County with a population of over 90,000, Quincy is the 8th largest city in Massachusetts. The “City of Presidents” was incorporated in 1972 and became a city in 1888. Quincy is comprised of many neighborhoods and villages, including Squantum, Wollaston, Merrymount, Hough’s Neck, Marina Bay, Montclair, North Quincy, Quincy Center, West Quincy and Adam’s Shore.
Historically, Quincy was known as a manufacturing and heavy industry city, with granite quarrying being the predominant industry in the 19th Century and shipbuilding at the Fore River Shipyard and Squantum Victory providing thousands of jobs in the 20th Century. In the 21st century, Quincy’s economy and job market has shifted to financial service, insurance and healthcare jobs moving into Quincy. The transformation of the job market in Quincy over the past few decades has also provided Quincy area residents with employment in the construction and building trades, including electricians, sheet metal workers, iron workers, pipe fitters, sprinkler fitters, laborers, roofers, excavators, heavy machine operators and crane operators.
If you live in or near Quincy, your Massachusetts workers’ compensation claim will be processed at the Department of Industrial Accident’s Boston location, located at 1 Congress Street. If you are injured working in Quincy and live outside of Quincy, your claim will be processed at the Department of Industrial Accidents location closest to your residence (Lawrence, Boston, Worcester, Springfield, or Fall River).
Let Us Handle the Confusing Paper Work While You Focus on Recovery
Often times following an injury at work, your employer and their workers’ compensation insurer will send you misleading and confusing paperwork to complete. You should be aware that you may be giving up significant legal rights by signing this paperwork without first consulting with a Quincy workers’ compensation attorney. For example, you may be provided with a Form 105 – Agreement to Extend 180 Day Payment-Without-Prejudice Period document under the guise that the insurance company is doing you a favor by extending your benefits. Many injured workers who do not have attorneys give up significant advantages by signing this form. You should never sign any legal documents without first consulting with an attorney. Our consultations are always free of charge to you, there are no costs for you to obtain the professional advice of one of our attorneys.
Free Consultations, Cases Handled on Contingent Fee Basis
Carney Law Firm handles all of its workers’ compensation matters on a contingent fee basis. If we are successful in obtaining workers’ compensation benefits for you pursuant to an order issued by a Department of Industrial Accident’s judge, the insurance company pays our attorneys fees. If we are able to negotiate a favorable lump sum settlement of your claim, our fee is typically 20% of the settlement proceeds, as set forth by the Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation statute.
