When May Workers’ Compensation Not Be Beneficial?
While the concept of workers’ compensation is seemingly fair and just, the program is ultimately intended to protect employers from liability, not employees. When you are injured on the job and file a workers’ compensation claim, you are referred to a doctor that is paid for by your employer for the purpose of evaluating the benefits you should receive. Essentially, this means that the doctor you will see is not on your side.
The doctor is going to prefer to honor the business relationship that he or she has built with your employer. The focus of your examination and diagnosis will not be on protecting your health. Instead it will be on minimizing the scope of the damage to limit the amount of money your employer’s insurance will have to cover. This means you will potentially receive less money than you deserve and insufficient treatment. It is essential that you speak with a workers’ compensation attorney before accepting any settlement.
Can I Sue For A Workplace Injury?
In some cases, you may have a better chance at attaining the full and fair compensation that you need through a personal injury claim. While you may not always be able to file a lawsuit for an injury that occurs at the workplace, there are specific scenarios that warrant a claim. These circumstances include:
- Injuries caused by defective products
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Intentional conduct of the employer
- Injuries caused by third parties
- An employer’s lack of workers’ compensation insurance

What a nice Easter surprise! It came in the mail Sat. I certainly wasn’t expecting anything like that but it does give me the opportunity to tell you that I’m so glad that you are our lawyer. Not only that we succeeded, but you made it so that I was at ease during the depositions and before the judge. Thank you so very much for all you did on my behalf. Also, please give my thanks to Staci for all her help. Louise B.
