If you are injured in the workplace and the injury is covered under workers’ compensation, then you can’t normally sue your employer for any additional damages. But that doesn’t mean that you don’t have a claim for a lawsuitagainst anyone else.
Our firm works with individuals on a range of personal injury cases that are related to workplace injuries. In some cases, there is someone who is liable for the injury even when you are also covered under workers’ compensation. For example, if you are a delivery driver working on the job and you are hit by another driver, that driver might be partially liable.
These types of cases are not limited to workers injured on the road, though. If you are injured in a construction accident because you fall from scaffolding that had a manufacturing defect, then the scaffolding manufacturer might be partly liable for your injuries. The same might be true of any injury involving equipment or tools that were defective.
Understanding when, how and why you might seek additional compensation for an injury or damages you experienced in the workplace can be difficult. You first have to understand exactly what the limits of your workers’ compensation coverage might be as well as how liability works in such cases.
Our firm works with you to evaluate your case and your needs following an accident. We help you seek comprehensive coverage that pays for your medical expenses and provides for you and your family while you are in recovery. Our goal is to help you seek financial stability so you can move forward with your life.
