Workplace Injury Lawyer Guiding Injured Clients Nationwide Through The Workers’ Comp Process
If you have been hurt in an on-the-job accident, you do not always need a workers’ compensation attorney to represent you in your claim. However, the workers’ comp lawyers at the McArthur Law Firm offer free consultations to injured employees to offer them legal advice and to review the case to see if there may be additional personal injury claims above and beyond workers’ compensation insurance.
In some cases, our work injury attorneys recommend the person file the claim without a lawyer and offer guidance to do so. There is no obligation to hire our firm after this free workers’ comp consultation.
Why Should I Speak With a Workers’ Compensation Attorney?
Injured workers have rights, but even the best employers in the state might not inform an employee of these rights after an on-the-job accident. The employer and the workers’ comp carrier is not on the side of the injured worker. The only way to receive legal advice that is truly in your interest is to speak to a personal injury and workers’ comp attorney. This consultation won’t cost you anything. It’s free to find out what your rights are.
Can Injured Workers Have a Personal Injury Claim?
If you have been injured because of the negligence of an employee working for another company, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim via a third party lawsuit, in addition to workers’ compensation. Personal injury claims offer more money to the injured person than worker’s comp benefits alone.
Construction accidents often lead to third party personal injury claims. Construction workers are typically present on sites where multiple parties are performing services. Many different contractors are often working on different aspects of the property at the same time. When one worker is responsible for the injury of another contractor, there may be a personal injury claim in addition to workers’ comp. Without speaking to a work accident lawyer, you may never know you have this additional claim.
Another common source of third party personal injury claims in workers’ comp is when a person, driving while on the job, is involved in a car or truck wreck with a person, also on the job. For example, if you drive for work and are struck by a pizza delivery man, you may have a personal injury claim against the company employing the driver in addition to workers’ compensation.
