A work injury can lead to significant physical harms and financial losses. Depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible to collect both workers compensation benefits and liability damages.
Representing People Who Suffered Work Injury
A work injury may occur at any workplace or during transportation. Details matter, as you may be limited to work comp benefits. However, you may be eligible to pursue a bodily injury claim against non-employers who caused your injuries.
Like everyone else, good people get hurt while performing their jobs or outside a workplace. Moreover, careless conduct doesn’t discriminate. If your employer, co-worker, or a separate person or company causes a major work injury, then take steps to protect yourself. Contact Fort Myers work injury lawyer David Harris to pursue all eligible compensation you deserve.
Understanding Work Injury Compensation
In every major or catastrophic personal injury claim, a survivor is eligible for compensation. Pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, medical expenses, and lost income, are all damages. Accordingly, money compensation makes up for theses damages.
If your work injury occurred because you, your employer, or a co-worker was careless, then you have a right to automatic workers compensation benefits. These benefits are no-fault compensation, so proving who made an error is not required. However, workers comp benefits have certain limits under Florida law.
Nevertheless, this scenario is different when someone not affiliated with your employer causes your work injury. Under these circumstances, you still receive workers comp benefits. But, you may also pursue separate claim or lawsuit against this other party. Accordingly, in these circumstances, you can often secure your full lost earnings and pain and suffering. Notably, this may depend in part on whether another party has good insurance coverage.
