Legal Options After a Work Injury
If you were injured in a workplace accident, you may be wondering what your legal options are. This can be confusing because many people aren’t sure of whether they are eligible for workers’ compensation or if a third party claim better suits their situation. Therefore, it is important to understand the difference between these options and the impacts that your choice might have. You should also be sure to discuss your options with an experienced attorney from the Ruben Law Firm who can help point you in the right direction. The difference between workers’ compensation and third-party claims is as follows:
- Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance offered by most employers that exists to cover medical expenses and lost wages after a workplace accident. This type of claim took the place of employees needing to sue their employers after becoming injured.
- Third-party claims exist to allow employees who were injured on the job due to the negligence of someone other than their employer. It is important to be aware that if you choose to file a third-party claim while also collecting workers’ compensation, you may be required to pay back some of the workers’ compensation you collected.
