Workplace Injuries | Acquiring The Compensation You Deserve
If you have suffered an injury at your workplace, you must be aware that your indemnification or compensation may include more than just your employer’s workers compensation insurance. You’ve probably heard that the only compensation you can receive is your worker’s compensation, however, there are situations in which you may sue for other damages caused by your injuries.
Below is a list of situations that may qualify you for additional compensation:
- If your employer doesn’t have workers’ compensation insurance, you may still be able to acquire some form of compensation. You may be able to file a civil lawsuit against your employer or even acquire your indemnification from state funds.
- You may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against your employer if your injuries were caused deliberately by your employer.
- If a third party is responsible for your injuries, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against that third party to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
- If your injury was caused by a toxic substance or a defective product, you may be able to sue the manufacturer
A workers compensation claim may involve very low payments which fail to compensate the employee for the pain and suffering caused by workplace injuries. It also fails to punish the employer for their unsafe or unhealthful conditions in the workplace.
