It doesn’t matter what industry you are in, anyone can be hurt at work. Sometimes the cause is a sudden accident and sometimes the injury occurs over time due to repetitive motions. The outcome is the same – an employee who has to seek extensive medical care for an injury that may impact them for the rest of their life.
Compensation can be obtained for work injuries. First, a workers’ comp claim can be filed which, if approved, should cover current medical bills and a small portion of lost wages. However, more than 65% of all workers’ comp claims are denied outright each year. While an appeal can be filed, it may take years to get the coverage that is deserved.
If a third party’s actions contributed to the accident which caused a worker harm, a work accident lawsuit may be an option. Through this lawsuit, additional compensation can be obtained which will pay for all past and future losses.
