How Does Workers Compensation Work?
You may be asking yourself, “How does workers compensation work?” Workers Compensation Claims arise when you are injured at work in the course and scope of your employment. Workers Compensation is meant to provide for your medical care and lost wages. In order to receive Workers Compensation it is not necessary to show that someone else’s negligence caused your injuries like in a typical personal injury claim. While you don’t have to prove negligence as in a typical personal injury claim you are also not entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering which you are generally entitled to in a typical personal injury claim. However there are certain circumstances where one could receive Workers Compensation from their employer while also filing suit against a separate negligent party allowing you to receive Workers Compensation without depriving you of the opportunity to receive compensation for your pain and suffering.
