Know Your Legal Rights When Injured
Injuries on the job are common, and when they happen, you need to know your rights. Your employer likely carries workers’ compensation insurance and that insurance should be there to help you when your work has caused any type of bodily injury. However, your employer may not want you out of work, and their insurance provider may be reluctant to pay out on your claim.
At the Drew Ferracuti Law Firm, we can help you pursue the compensation you need and deserve. Whether you were injured on a construction site or in an office, or any other type of work setting, we can help.
Don’t Suffer More Than You Have To
You could be suffering due to an injury caused by dangerous conditions in the workplace, and if you are, you’re entitled to the right compensation. When you can’t work to your capacity or at all due to an injury, serious illness or disability, you should not feel financially desperate.
The workers’ comp system does not rely on fault when it comes to workplace accidents. In other words, an injury suffered at work makes an employee eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, even if the injured employee is entirely to blame for the accident.
The flip side of this is that an employer is only liable for workers’ comp. An employee may not sue an employer for additional damages, even if the employer is entirely at fault for the accident. In some situations, however, you may have a claim for a third-party personal injury claim.
