Workers’ Compensation Insurance protects workers who are injured in the workplace without requiring them to prove that their employer was negligent in causing the injury. However, the amount of compensation to be paid for medical costs, loss of wages, and permanent disability if appropriate, is to some extent open to interpretation by the insurer. Our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys can help you to get all of the compensation for your injury that you are entitled to.
Personal Injury Lawsuit
Although workers’ compensation laws typically prevent the employee from suing the employer, limiting the employee to compensation under the workers compensation insurance policy, those laws do not prevent the employee from suing a third party, such as an equipment manufacturer or independent contractor, for their negligence to the extent it caused the employee’s injury. Our attorneys at Baggett, McCall, Burgess, Watson & Gaughan LLC can evaluate your case and tell you whether you have a potential claim against someone other than your employer for negligence.
