Product Liability

Workers’ compensation cases do not require injured employees to show fault in order to obtain benefits. This means that an injured worker might be entitled to benefits and compensation regardless of who was at fault for his or her accident. However, in order to be eligible for benefits and win your case, you must be able to demonstrate that you were injured while you were working at your job. You must also be able to show that you were injured within the scope of your employment. In most instances, if you were going to work or coming from your workplace, this does not constitute an on-the-job injury.

If you are able to meet this legal burden, you might be entitled to a variety of benefits, depending upon the nature and extent of your injuries. First of all, you might be able to recover the cost of your medical and physical therapy treatment that is related to your injury or injuries. In addition, you might be entitled to recover a portion of your lost wages. Finally, if you suffered a permanent injury, you might be eligible to recover permanency benefits. In order to be successful in a permanency claim, a healthcare provider must be willing to state, to a reasonable degree of medical certainty, that you suffered a permanent injury as a result of your workplace accident.

Workers’ Compensation FAQ

Can I Sue my Employer for a Work Injury?

Claims against employers are ordinarily resolved through the workers’ compensation system, although you could file a third-party claim against someone else who was responsible for your accident.

What Other Benefits are Compensable Through Workers’ Compensation?

If you are unable to work in the same capacity after your workplace accident, you may be eligible for vocational rehabilitation and training. In workplace fatality cases, surviving family members could pursue death benefits.

What if I am Contesting the Insurance Company’s Decision?

If you contest your employer/insurer’s decision regarding eligibility for benefits, you could file issues with the Workers’ Compensation Commission, after which a hearing will be set.
