Workers’ compensation will provide you with financial benefits to pay for medical costs and part of your missing wages after being hurt in a work-related accident. Since liability for the accident is not questioned in a workers’ comp claim, you can get it even if your own mistake was the cause of your own injury. All you need is to be covered in your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance plan.
If you are not covered in your employer’s workers’ comp plan, or if your employer does not have workers’ compensation at all, then you will be in a difficult situation. No financial compensation will be headed your way, and you may even be blamed for your work-related accident and told you cannot get compensation at all. When this happens, you will have to file a work injury claim against your employer or other liable parties, just like you would file any other personal injury claim.
Damages you can seek in a work injury claim include:
Since a work injury claim is based on liability like any other injury claim, you will have to bring your claim against specific parties, which might mean more than just your employer. Coworkers, vendors, and even customers, for example, could all be named defendants in a work injury claim depending on the circumstances of your injury.
