Workers' Compensation and Personal Injury Claims
In general, injured workers cannot pursue a civil lawsuit against the responsible employer. Rather, the exclusive remedy for an injured worker is to file a workers' compensation claim. Employers are required to maintain workers' compensation insurance, and it is your right, and in many cases your sole remedy, to file a workers' compensation claim. It is important to note some exceptions to this general rule. For example, you may be able to bring a separate civil action if an injury is caused by willful or malicious actions, defective products, or from the operation of a motor vehicle. We can assist in identifying and pursuing any additional action, while vigorously representing your interests in the workers' compensation forum. Some examples include:
Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA)
Negligent Third Party
