Personal injury litigation is classified into two categories, negligence and intentional tort cases. Apart from this, workplace injuries also taken into account.
People who get injured on the job are entitled to take legal action against his employer or colleagues. At most, they can claim it is termed as “employee compensation”.
Depending on the circumstances and causes of the accident, the injured person is also entitled to file suit against a “third party” that includes the owner of the premises where the accident occurs, the manufacturer unsafe machines, another employee causing injury or company employee works.
For example, if a person gets a surprise hit with a truck driven by a fellow employee, he is entitled to claim and recover the “workers’ compensation” benefits.
On the other hand, if the truck causing injury is driven by an employee of a different company, the claimant is entitled to recover more money from the driver and his employer in order to compensate for the damage done.
If you are injured at work, it is strongly recommended that you should get the case assessed by a lawyer who specializes in personal injury law. This will help you ensure that you will receive compensation benefits all employees you are entitled to get.
Tell your lawyer if all you have a claim against the “third party” for the injuries you suffered.
