The bottom line is that you likely deserve more than workers’ compensation insurance initially offers to pay you. In some instances, the insurance provider will minimize the value of your claim. It may deny certain parts of your claim and refuse to pay some of your medical expenses or lost wages. You might have an underlying personal injury claim to go along with your workers’ compensation claim.
A third-party personal injury claim can greatly elevate the value of your case. If the negligence of a worker from a different company than your employer’s company or a product manufacture was the cause of your workplace accident injury, you might be able to file a separate compensation claim to hold that company accountable for your injury.
Work injury claims can be filed for accidents that happen on-site or off-site as long as you were doing something work-related at the time. Compensation may cover damages and losses such as:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Lost earning power
- Emotional distress and psychological damage
- Long-term care costs
- Death benefits
