  • Report an Inury

In order for the City of Somerville Workers' Compensation Department to provide adequate service, it is imperative that all work related injuries be reported as soon as possible, preferably the same day the injury occurred or within twenty-four (24) hours of the occurrence. Prompt notification of an employee's injury will enable the Workers' Compensation Department to investigate the case thoroughly and expedite benefits to the employee.
