If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident at work, which was not your fault and you suffer from a workplace injury, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation.
If you are injured at work, in most cases you are entitled to workers’ compensation. The type of compensation you are entitled to will depend on the nature of your injury, and whether you are covered under workers’ compensation.
As with all accident compensation claims, it will be necessary to prove that your injury, illness or disease was caused by the negligence of another party. It is important to consult with an experienced personal injury law firm who will conduct an investigation, compile evidence to support your claim and present it to third party insurers.
Every personal injury claim is very different and while some are settled within a matter of months, others can take years. Most claims for workplace accidents and workplace injuries are settled out of Court; however, some will need to go trial in order for you to receive fair compensation.
