You may already know that getting into an accident on the job makes you eligible for filing a workers' compensation claim, even if you were responsible. You may also know that sustaining an injury in other areas of life, such as a motor vehicle accident, may warrant a personal injury lawsuit. But did you know that in some cases you can pursue both?
Workplace injuries are far too common. Whether you get hurt by an equipment failure, suffer a slip-and-fall accident or develop an illness due to an unhealthy work environment, you may wonder what you should do next. An occupational accident should not financially devastate you or cause you to have to sacrifice your career.
