Eye Injuries

Quincy Eye Injury Attorneys

Representing Victims of Partial & Total Vision Loss & Other Eye Injuries

Every day, around 2,000 workers across the United States suffer from eye injuries that require medical treatment. Some are left completely blinded, some suffer partial vision loss, and some are only temporarily impaired. No matter the severity of your eye injury, you deserve compensation if you were hurt at work.

At Powers & Caccavale, we know that expensive medical bills and lost wages can contribute to stress and anxiety on top of the pain of your injury. That’s why our experienced workers’ comp attorneys are dedicated to helping workers get the compensation they are owed.

To speak to an eye injury lawyer 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.

Jobs with Eye Injury Risk

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:

Compensation for Work Eye Injuries

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 workers’ compensation attorney to discuss your individual case and how much you can expect to receive.

Losing your vision or suffering a serious eye injury can be overwhelming and terrifying. You may not be able to return to work and your medical bills could be sky-high. Workers’ compensation can help, but getting your rightful workers’ comp benefits isn’t always so easy. You should speak to an experienced attorney who can help you understand your rights and take legal action on your behalf. Even if you think you have a fairly straightforward claim, an attorney can help ensure that you receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to.
