Choosing the Correct Type of Claim (or Claims) Can Benefit Injury Victims
It’s a sad fact that thousands of people in the United States die every year due to on-the-job incidents, and millions more suffer injuries, some of them serious and life-altering. Although many employers take job safety much more seriously than in the past, and although regulatory agencies at the federal and state levels have put many more safety requirements in place, these incidents can and still do happen. When a workplace injury or fatality has occurred, a common question for the injured workers or their surviving family members is, “What type of compensation is available to help recover from this incident?” Depending upon the state and the facts of the injury incident, the most common answer is — workers’ compensation or liability insurance . . . or both. Determining which type of coverage may be available and which may provide the best bottom-line financial outcome for the client’s circumstances is a key service that experienced personal injury attorneys are able to provide.
