Workers compensation benefits can help you recover the cost of your medical bills and a portion of your lost wages after a work injury. However, the workers comp system limits the amount and type of compensation you may receive. In this video, attorney Victor Long explains why consulting with a personal injury lawyer after an on-the-job injury can help you maximize your recovery, even if you are already receiving workers compensation payments.
Well, we practice many types of law. One of the areas that I’ve been particularly interested in is construction law. A lot of working people are familiar with workers compensation. Workers compensation, of course, is a wonderful thing for people who have been injured on the job. But many times, they don’t realize that there are remedies and ways to be compensated over and above workers compensation. Now, unfortunately workers compensation is a very limited remedy. It was actually enacted so that employers could continue to do business even if there was a catastrophic loss. But when people suffer catastrophic losses, it’s good to know that there are other remedies available. If you’re receiving workers compensation, it’s a very good idea to see a personal injury lawyer. Like any other situation where there has been an accident and someone may be at fault, it’s important that a good investigation is done so that you can make sure that all the compensation that is available is actually being provided to the worker.
