Difference Between Personal Injury & Workers’ Comp Claims
Unlike other personal injury claims, workers' compensation does not require proof of negligence of another. As long as your injuries were sustained as a result of your employment, you may be eligible.
Once you choose to accept workers compensation benefits, you give up your right to claim other losses such as mental anguish or pain and suffering.
What Does My Workers’ Compensation Cover?
Workers’ compensation claims cover:
Any medical problems or illnesses that are attributed directly to your employment.
Illnesses or medical conditions that are diagnosed later and related to your employment. An example of a long term condition that qualifies for workers compensation is asbestos exposure, which can lead to mesothelioma much later in life, long after discontinuing exposure to the material.
How Much Am I Paid While on Workers’ Compensation?
Many factors are involved in determining your workers' compensation payments. If you feel that your employer or the insurance company are trying to slow or even prevent you from getting the benefits you deserve for your work injury, you should contact one of our workers’ compensation attorneys immediately to protect yourself and your rights to fair compensation.
We work with your employer and their insurance company to be absolutely certain you receive the compensation you are allowed for your work injury or illness.
