What Workers Should Know About Job-Related Injuries
After an accident or injury on the job, many employees turn to workers’ compensation for benefits. They’re often unaware that they may also have a personal injury case if a negligent third party (that is, someone other than their employer) contributed to the accident.
A successful personal injury claim can provide:
- Significant compensation above and beyond workers’ comp
- Coverage for ongoing injury costs.
- Costs associated with rehabilitation.
However, having a skilled personal injury lawyer on your side is crucial – ideally sooner rather than later.
