Worker’s Compensation vs. Legal Action

If you or a loved one has been injured while at work, it is likely that your employer may have worker’s compensation insurance.  Worker’s compensation is designed to help supplement the employee with wage replacement, medical treatments, job rehabilitation and other benefits.  Sometimes the benefits from this type of insurance are insufficient.  If you have costs that exceed the worker’s compensation you received, you might be able to proceed with legal action.  Here are some reasons you may sue for more financial help:

  • The compensation from your employer was not enough to cover your expenses while you cannot work
  • Your injury has left you unable to work for an extended period of time
  • Your employer does not cover all the aspects of your injury and other costs
  • Negligence of your employer or fellow employees caused the workplace accident
