Injured at Work: Personal Injury in the Workplace vs. Workers’ Compensation Claim

Injured at Work: Personal Injury in the Workplace vs. Workers’ Compensation Claim

by | Oct 20, 2020 | 0 comments

Did you know that according to the National Safety Council somewhere in America a worker is injured on the job every 7 seconds? And the top three causes of workplace injuries are overextension, contact with objects and equipment, and slip and falls.

If you sustain a personal injury at work, most assume that a workers’ compensation claim is the only avenue for recovery – but that is not always the case.

A workers’ compensation claim may help secure needed medical care and replace a part of your lost wages, it does not provide for compensation the way a personal injury claim does. Many injured workers fail to explore whether they have a workers’ compensation claim AND a personal injury claim. This is why it’s vitally important to engage the services of a personal injury attorney to evaluate your workplace accident. A skilled attorney can help you determine if the facts of your claim allow for a personal injury claim.
