Handling All Types of Workplace Injuries

- Car accidents or truck accidents involving people driving for work
- Fatal accidents
Workers' Comp and Personal Injury Law
Of course, workers' compensation is still the most basic form of recovery for workplace accidents. The workers' compensation system provides a designated level of financial recovery for an injury to an employee suffered at work. In return, the employee gives us the right to bring a personal injury lawsuit against his or her employer.
It still may be possible, however, for an employee to pursue a lawsuit against parties other than the employer − such as a negligent contractor or the maker of a defective product. This type of "third party claim" may still be possible for you, even if your recovery from your employer is limited to workers' compensation.
