If you have been injured in an accident while on the job, you may be eligible to recover workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation benefits are put in place to financially support a worker so that they can heal. In some cases, a third party may need to be held accountable for an accident due to negligence. No matter the case, our Prince George’s County work injury lawyer is prepared to assist you. Continue reading to learn more about filing a claim after a work injury. Here are some questions you may have:
What should I know about workers’ compensation after a work injury?
Workers’ compensation is used to provide the financial support you need to cover medical bills, lost wages, and a percentage of your paycheck during the time that you are unable to return to work. Submitting a workers’ compensation claim will go through insurance. This process allows employees to take legal action without having to directly sue their employer, which may leave them without a job. However, there are times when a claim may be denied or the compensation is unsatisfactory. This is why it is important to retain the service of an attorney who has experience handling workers’ compensation claims to recover the compensation you deserve.
If you can prove that you were injured on the job, you are likely eligible for workers’ compensation.
What other parties may be held liable after a work injury?
If you believe that your work injury was caused by another party’s negligence, you may be eligible to recover additional compensation. For example, if the property owner where you work acted negligently, or if the manufacturer or designer of the equipment you were using at the time of your injuries were at fault, you may be able to file a valid third-party lawsuit. Most third-party lawsuits require a comprehensive investigation to seek all responsible parties and to prove their negligence. For assistance with a third-party lawsuit, give our Prince George’s County personal injury attorneys a call today.
