Every day, around 2,000 workers across the United States suffer from eye injuries that require medical treatment.

No matter the severity of your eye injury, you deserve compensation if you were hurt at work.

To speak to an eye injury attorney in Quincy, contact Powers & Caccavale at (617) 379-0016. Your initial consultation is free, and there are no fees unless/until we recover compensation for you. 

What Jobs Have High Eye Injury Risks?

Did you know that 40% of workers who suffer from workplace eye injuries are mechanics, industrial equipment operators, plumbers, and carpenters? Any workers who are exposed to flying particles (wood, glass, metal, etc.), chemicals, power tools, UV radiation, or toxic fumes are all at an increased risk of vision loss if they do not wear proper eye protection.

Other jobs that come with a risk for eye injury include:

What Compensation Could I Receive From a Work Eye Injury?

In the state of Massachusetts, workers who sustain eye injuries could potentially receive additional compensation:

  • If you lose one eye but retain your ocular muscles, or if you lose vision in one eye, you could receive the state’s average weekly wage multiplied by 39.
  • If you lose eyesight in both eyes, you could receive the state’s average weekly wage multiplied by 96.
  • If you sustain permanent—but correctable—vision in one or both eyes, you could receive the state’s average weekly wage multiplied by seven.

These laws are subject to a few conditions, so it’s best to speak with a qualified eye injury attorney to discuss your individual case and how much you can expect to receive.

Is There a Time Limit I Need to File My Eye Injury Claim in Massachusetts?

The state of Massachusetts imposes a statute of limitations on workers' compensation claims, including those related to eye injuries. Typically, workers will have four years to pursue legal action following an injury at the workplace. Act promptly and initiate legal proceedings within the stipulated time frame to preserve your right to seek compensation is imperative. Waiting too long may jeopardize your ability to pursue a claim, as evidence may fade, witnesses may become unavailable, and crucial details may be forgotten.

At Powers & Caccavale, we recognize the urgency of these matters. Our experienced Quincy eye injury attorneys are well-versed in the specific time limits applicable to these claims. We work diligently to ensure your case is filed within the statutory constraints, allowing us to build a strong foundation for your claim.
