Injured in an Auto
A work-related injury can
be particularly disruptive, especially when
it interferes with your ability to draw a
paycheck. Understanding the complexities of
how the workers' compensation system works,
can be daunting and further frustrate your
mental state after suffering an injury. At
The Law Office of Andrea R. Reid, we know what you can
expect at every step of the process if you
decide to make a workers' compensation
claim, as well as, a personal injury claim.
What is the difference
between a workers’ compensation case and a
personal injury claim or lawsuit?
Is Needed in a Personal Injury Case, but
in a Workers’ Compensation Case!
The biggest and most
important difference is that a personal
injury claim is based on fault and a
workers’ compensation case is not. In order
to recover damages against someone for a car
accident, a slip and fall, or any type of
negligence claim, the other person must be
negligent, meaning that he/she must have
done something wrong.
In a workers’
compensation case, any employee injured on
the job is entitled to workers’ compensation
benefits with some very limited exceptions.
Workers’ compensation has nothing to do with
fault. You do not need to prove that your
employer or your co-worker(s) did anything
wrong in order for you to receive workers’
compensation benefits. Even if you were
negligent and your negligence caused your
injury, you are still entitled to receive
workers’ compensation benefits.
Different Damages Recoverable
workers’ compensation case you are not
entitled to benefits
for pain and suffering.
In a personal injury claim or lawsuit, you
are entitled to recover all of the damages
that you have suffered. This includes lost
earnings, lost earning capacity, medical
bills, future medical expenses, permanent
impairment, pain and suffering, and loss of
enjoyment of life (i.e., hedonic damages),
among other things.
But in a workers’
compensation case, you can only receive
weekly compensation, permanent impairment
benefits, medical bills, and vocational
