You May Have A Personal Injury Claim And Workers' Comp Claim

Workers' compensation laws are intended to provide essential benefits to workers who are injured in the course of their employment. However, sometimes work-related injuries are caused by another person's negligence or misconduct.

When this happens, it may be possible to bring a separate claim against the responsible party outside the scope of the workers' compensation. Some examples of this may include:

  • A negligent driver who causes a motor vehicle accident and injures someone driving in the course of his or her employment
  • The manufacturer or distributor of a dangerous product or machine that causes a work-related injury
  • A property owner who fails to properly maintain his or her premises, causing a slip-and-fall accident to an employee
