Injury accidents, which occur on industrial work-sites, may involve two claims: a Workers Compensation claim; and a liability claim against the person(s) who are at fault. The injured worker can claim medical expenses as well as a portion of his lost wages in a Workers Compensation claim. So long as the at-fault party was not employed by the same company as the injured party, a liability claim (at-fault party pays) would be possible. We bring liability claims to recover medical expenses and lost wages, as well as compensation for pain and suffering. The interplay between these two sets of laws complicates the claim process in a way that provides opportunities to maximize both recoveries. Request a Free Consultation so we can show you how.
