Your Rights After a Workplace Accident
Following a workplace accident, one of the most important rights you have is your right to legal representation. Accidents and injuries can create tremendous setbacks for victims and families, and make complex and foreign legal proceedings even more difficult. With bold and unwavering advocates by your side, you can pursue the compensation you need through the most appropriate means – whether that requires navigating the workers’ comp process or filing a personal injury lawsuit.
- Workers’ Compensation – Workers’ compensation is a no-fault insurance system that provides injured workers with benefits to cover their medical treatment, rehabilitation, and a portion of their lost income. Because workers’ comp is no-fault, workers have the ability to receive benefits regardless of who caused their accident and injuries. However, the claim process is challenging and requires workers to provide ample documentation and meet extensive requirements. We assist clients with both initial workers’ comp applications and appeals.
- Third Party Personal Injury Lawsuit – Some workplace accidents are the result of a third party’s negligence, such as a contractor who causes an accident as a result of their negligent or wrongful acts, including safety violations. In these situations, injured workers and families may have the right to seek justice and compensation by pursuing civil personal injury lawsuits. These cases are handled in civil court and allow for financial recoveries beyond what workers’ compensation provides, such as damages for pain and suffering. However, they require victims to prove a defendant was negligent, which means legal representation and clear and convincing arguments are critical.
