Thousands of people are injured every year on the job. Wrongful death cases occur due to lack of safety standards in the workplace. Workers’ compensation was designed so that when you are injured on the job you may not sue your employer in exchange for compensation to cover your costs of medical care. Those benefits can be much lower than what is needed to cover the victims medical and other costs.
Where it is possible that someone other than your employer is at fault for your injuries, you may be able to receive compensation from that third party in order to cover the costs of loss of wages, medical bills, future medical care, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and more. It is imperative to consult with a personal injury attorney well-versed in on the job injury cases, so that you can put the legal issues aside and focus on your health and recovery.
