Can I file a claim if I suffered an accident at work?
Many victims of workplace accidents often wonder about this question, and the answer is no. Workers’ Compensation law states that you can’t. Workers’ Compensation, in exchange for the payment of your benefits, is the only way to recover from your injuries. This law, in exchange for the payment of compensation to cover the victim’s expenses in the event of an accident, prevents the filing of a lawsuit against the employer.
However, on some occasions, it is possible that a lawsuit may be an alternative for the injured worker, such as when the employer does not respond for the injuries suffered by the worker, or if it directly denies access to the compensation that the worker deserves by law.
In these cases, the victim has the right to file a legal claim demanding the fulfillment of their rights as an injured worker, including the millions of dollars in compensation that they are entitled to receive by law.
What benefits can I receive by filing a claim?
In addition to the compensation that will cover each of the expenses generated by the accident, such as medical care, prescription drugs, rehabilitation therapies, clinical studies, and lost wages, a lawsuit would allow the victim to claim other payments that could considerably increase the total amount of compensation, such as, for example:
- Moral damages payments.
- Pain and suffering as a result of the injuries.
- Future injuries from the accident.
It is important to keep in mind that, in order to be successful in the lawsuit and achieve each of the benefits that the victim deserves, the help of labor lawyers is essential.
