When you suffer injuries at work, you have the option to file a workers’ compensation case. Your choice depends on whether doctors expect your injuries to result in permanent disabilities, or whether your employer was grossly negligent. All workers’ comp cases are different, so it’s best to speak with your attorney before filing a claim.
Temporary Disability BenefitsYou can get temporary disability benefits, including lost wages and medical benefits if you file for workers' compensation. If you believe your injuries could lead to permanent disabilities, you should contact a workers' compensation attorney.
Personal injury covers a myriad of cases. Types of personal injury cases include vehicle accidents, dog bites, assault, slip and fall accidents, work-related accidents, medical malpractice, and wrongful death. When you suffer injuries in these types of cases, it is usually due to another person’s negligence. A vehicle accident could be caused by a drunk driver, a distracted driver, or a malfunction with the vehicle. A work injury could be caused by a slip and fall, or because your employer did not provide the appropriate safety equipment for your job. Premises liability covers many types of cases, including dog bites, slip and fall cases, and even assault cases if a company does not provide enough security in the form of lighting or security guards.
