Marlborough Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Many people don’t realize that service workers in industries such as the hospitality, food service, administrative support and building maintenance industries suffer some of the highest rates of injuries in the nation. Kitchen accidents, lifting injuries, and accidents using heavy appliances and transport devices are common, as well as working with your arms and hands, while being on your feet throughout a shift, results in serious strain and repetitive stress injuries.
