Suffered a Work Injury?
Personal Injury Attorneys Review Your Legal Options
Under the law, you generally cannot pursue a lawsuit against your employer after an accident causes your personal injury on the job. Our personal injury attorneys can assist you with a work-related injury. We will help you determine whether you need to apply solely for workers compensation benefits, or you should also pursue third-party liability claims.
Should I File a Personal Injury Lawsuit or Workers Comp?
Any worker who has been injured on the job should be entitled to pursue a workers compensation claim for medical expenses and lost wages. What workers may not realize is that a person may also be able to pursue third-party liability claims, or injury lawsuit, when a party other than your employer is responsible for your accident.
