On-the-job accidents differ from other types of accidents in that an injured worker may have more than one source of financial recovery. You probably qualify for workers' compensation, but depending on how your injury occurred, you may also be able to bring a personal injury claim against another party.
If you qualify to bring a third-party claim in addition to a workers' comp claim, you may recover compensation for your pain and suffering and other non-medical costs. These are not covered by work comp.
At the law firm of Price, Hargett, Petho and Anderson our personal injury attorneys help injured workers get all the workers' comp benefits they are due. We will also review your accident to see if there are any other responsible parties besides your employer or coworkers.
