Worker’s Compensation

A person has a worker’s compensation claim if he/she was injured while at work, or on the job. For example, a person who trips over a file cabinet at work has a worker’s compensation claim, as well as someone who is involved in a car accident while delivering goods. The delivery worker however would also have a third party personal injury claim in addition to his/her worker’s compensation claim. A significant difference between worker’s compensation claims and other personal injury claims is that negligence is not considered. It does not matter if the employee tripped over his/her own feet, or slipped on water left on the floor.
