Being injured on the job can prove financially devastating, especially when you end up with massive medical bills and have to miss time from work.

Typically, workers’ compensation is an injured employee’s sole legal claim against their employer for a work-related injury or occupational illness. An employee typically may not bring a personal injury claim against their employer. However, exceptions to the exclusive remedy provision of workers’ compensation include when an employer intentionally causes injury or illness to a worker, such as by withholding safety equipment as a form of discipline or retaliation.
If your work injury resulted from a third party’s fault, such as if you were hit by a negligent driver, or you had an accident caused by a defective piece of equipment or machinery, you may be entitled to pursue a third-party personal injury claim, in addition to seeking workers’ compensation benefits from your employer for your injury that occurred in the course and scope of your employment. However, obtaining workers’ compensation benefits can affect the financial compensation you receive from a third-party personal injury claim for your work injury. A knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney can help you understand your rights and options and maximize your financial recovery.
