Helping You Decide Which Option Is Best Based On Your Situation
Workers’ compensation is available to those who have an accident due to a variety of reasons. Perhaps a faulty machine left you with burns or a broken bone. Maybe you work on a construction site and fell off a scaffold. In these situations, it is important to report the incident to your employer as soon as possible and seek medical attention. Your employer can then assist in paying your medical bills while you are out. The goal is to make ends meet while you get back on your feet and can eventually go back to work.
In some situations, a personal injury claim may be necessary as opposed to filing a workers’ compensation claim. The biggest difference between the two is that workers’ compensation claims do not require an individual to be at fault. In a personal injury case, however, it means one person is responsible for your suffering. They then become financially responsible, instead of your employer’s insurance company. Another big difference is that you are not entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering under workers’ compensation claims. In personal injury cases, you can sue for that as well.
