Recovering Compensation After a Workplace Accident
If you have been seriously injured on the job, you may be entitled to compensation that can offset some of the physical, emotional, and burdens associated with your injuries. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. If you were injured on the job and do file for workers’ compensation, you cannot take legal action against your employer. However, if you were injured by the negligence of a third party who is not your employer, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more. It is important to note that most of the time, you cannot collect workers’ compensation and compensation for a claim against a third party. You may be ordered by the court to pay back your workers’ compensation. Of course, each situation is different so it is important to discuss yours with an experienced attorney.
