Brain Injury On The Job Injury Law

I sustained a brain injury on the job. Who is responsible?

Almost any time you are injured at work, you will be able to get workers’ compensation benefits. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation payments are often low, usually are limited in duration, and do not necessarily provide any form of lump sum payment. Fortunately, in addition to your workers’ compensation claim, you may also have a claim against a “third party,” (someone other than your employer who may be responsible for your injuries). For example, you may be able to sue the manufacturer of unsafe equipment, the owner of the premises where the injury occurred (if it is different from your employer), or against another company whose employee caused the injury.

A third party personal injury case can be brought in addition to a workers’ compensation case. But unlike a workers’ compensation case, third party lawsuits provide a chance to get pain and suffering damages and future damages. To determine if you have a good personal injury case, contact an experienced personal injury attorney right away.
