Maximizing Compensation After A Workplace Accident
A workplace accident can leave you with significant hardships, including lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering. While a workers’ compensation claim can provide you with benefits for medical bills and a percentage of wage loss, only personal injury law allows you to seek full compensation for pain and suffering and other damages. Many injured workers do not know that they may be eligible to pursue a personal injury claim. The key lies in discovering who is responsible for the accident.
If a negligent third party contributed to your workplace accident, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim. Third parties include contractors, subcontractors, landowners, equipment manufacturers and other parties who are not your employer or a coworker.
