If you or a loved one was hurt on the job, you and your family may be struggling to get your lives back to normal. In addition to dealing with the physical pain, medical appointments and other challenges that come with a serious injury, you may be experiencing financial hardship from the loss of or reduction to your paycheck. In some situations, workers' comp can help bridge the gap, but it may not be enough to make up for the loss.
In trying to resolve the financial and medical problems created by a workplace injury — especially if the injury was caused by dangerous work conditions, negligence or equipment failure — it may be appropriate to file a separate personal injury claim with the help of a qualified attorney. You may be entitled to a financial award to cover medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.
