When a worker is injured at work, he or she is not typically knowledgeable about employment law and what his or her rights are as an employee. Many times filing a workers compensation claim for the accident and injury is adequate for recovering lost wages and medical expenses while the injured employee recovers. However, sometimes a workers compensation claim isn’t enough
A workplace lawsuit can arise anytime an employee suffers an injury at work, as long as someone other than the owner of the business or co-worker is responsible. It could be a slip-and-fall accident that results in an injury to your back, your knee, your shoulder, or any other major body part. A workplace lawsuit could arise from a motor vehicle accident when you are driving as part of your job duties. A motor vehicle accident that causes injury can also give rise to a negligence lawsuit, if the other driver is a fault.
