A topic that often comes up involves the ins and outs of workers compensation.
Let’s Take an Example
Say for instance you’re working for a company and your manager sends you to a separate location. While en route to your destination you suddenly get involved in a car accident.
This of course is a workers’ compensation claim and it is your legal right to recover from your employer, since you were injured while at work. In fact, something like this is considered a pretty straight-forward case.
Workers’ Compensation Claim…Check.. Personal Injury Claim Too?
Keep in mind however that if you are hit by a car, you now also have a personal injury claim against the person who hit you. So now you have two cases, and you are now eligible to recover more from just one case.
