Workers' Compensation – What Is It?
What Is Workers’ Compensation?
This does not preclude the injured worker from seeking other damages if available. For example, if the injury was caused by defective machinery, then the injured party may be able to bring a civil suit against the manufacturer of that defective product. Keep in mind though that your employer can recover its workers’ compensation payments from any recovery that the injured party receives from the civil suit.
If you have been injured in the workplace, it is recommended that you contact a personal injury attorney to discuss your options. A lawyer can help you determine whether there are options other than workers’ compensation available in your case, and can provide will the necessary information to make an informed decision on how to proceed.
