Should I File A Workers' Compensation And Personal Injury Claim?
While workers' compensation usually pays for a significant portion of the damages in construction site accidents, it is often not the only remedy available. Additional damages can be awarded if an employee of one contractor is injured as the result of negligence by an employee of another. A personal injury claim can be brought against the second contractor to recover damages beyond what workers' compensation provides. Unlike workers' compensation, a personal injury claim can result in financial compensation for disfigurement, pain and suffering.
