An unfortunate reality is that many people who are injured at work are reluctant to pursue their rights. The reality is that asserting your rights is often the only way to ensure that you will receive the compensation you deserve after an on-the-job injury. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, there may be two different sources of compensation:
- Workers' compensation — Every worker who is injured on the job is entitled to certain benefits through their employers' workers' compensation insurance. These benefits can include medical coverage and coverage for last wages. The workers' compensation process is complex and your employer's insurance provider may try to deny or minimize your claim, especially if you make any mistakes in the process. Having an experienced attorney who understands the workers' compensation system there to guide you and protect your rights is smart choice.
- Third-party claims — If someone apart from your employer was responsible for your injury, that person or business is referred to as a third party and can be pursued for compensation. This type of action is like any other sort of personal injury claim, like a car accident. It can be pursued at the same time as workers' compensation benefits.
If you have been injured on the job, the best step is to secure the representation of an attorney who has a deep understanding of both the workers' compensation system and how to build strong cases on third-party claims.
