We've been dealing with record temperature lows.  If you work outdoors, or your job takes you outside, please make sure that you take appropriate care of your body.  Frostbite can settle in within a matter of minutes.  Wear the proper clothing!  If you see a colleague who is not dressed appropriately, say something!  

If you need an experienced workers' comp lawyer, give us a call at 617-367-0880 for a free consultation or visit our website at www.kantrovitzlaw.com.
