Work Accidents, Personal Injury, & Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Injuries sustained at work or work-related are almost always covered under workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation is no-fault, which means it generally does not matter who caused the injury. There are exceptions to this as explained below in third-party liability claims. However, if a personal injury at work is covered by workers’ compensation, then the employee is limited to workers’ compensation benefits.

Pain and suffering are not included and can only be compensated for in a third-party liability claim. Working with a personal injury lawyer will improve your chances of receiving fair compensation.
Third-Party Liability Claims for Personal Injury & Workers’ Compensation
An injured worker can seek additional damages for pain and suffering by taking action against a third-party other than the employer. This applies to a variety of situations, including medical malpractice in treatment of a personal injury, inspectors failing to properly examine the employer’s work-safety, and products liability claims against distributors and manufacturers of work equipment.
