If someone sustains an injury on the job, they will normally just have the workers’ compensation claim. There can be times, however, when an injured person will have a case that involves both a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury claim. These types of cases occur when a third-party, that is not the employer, is negligent and responsible for causing injuries. The simplest example would be a delivery driver that is injured in a car accident by a negligent third-party.
There are various issues that can arise in these types of cases. It is important to have your own attorney who can help you with the legal issues and ensure that you receive all of the many benefits that are available. Our law firm handles both workers’ compensation claims and personal injury claims, which makes us uniquely situated in dealing with these claims.
