Crossover Cases: Personal Injury & Workers' Comp
Walnut Creek Crossover Case Attorney
When an employee suffers a workplace injury because of an accident on the job, the first solution that comes to mind is to file for workers' compensation. Though this may be the best choice for him or her, there is a downside to workers' comp. When an injured employee files a workers' compensation claim, they give up their right to sue their employer in a personal injury claim. Workers' comp can cover medical treatment and medical mileage, but oftentimes a personal injury settlement is greater than the amount an employee receives through workers' comp. So which is the better choice? Well, sometimes the answer is "both."
