Did you know that workers who are injured in the course of their employment have two possible sources of compensation for their injuries? The first is a worker’s compensation claim. Suppose you are an over-the-road truck driver. You live in West Virginia. Your company is based in Arkansas. You were hired in Virginia. You were involved in an accident in New Jersey. Do you know where you would bring a claim for workers compensation benefits. Not many people do. This can be a real puzzler even for an attorney, if he isn’t experienced in workers compensation claims. Workers compensation claims can be incredibly complicated and the compensation you receive could vary from state to state. It is important to know where you can bring a claim and the best state in which to make your claim. Suppose the workers comp doctor says you can go back to work? You know your own body. You know what hurts. Does the doctor even care? After all, he is being paid by your company’s insurance carrier. Secondly, an employee injured in the course of his/her employment may also have the right to seek monetary compensation from a third party who may have been responsible for the injury. For instance, if you are an employee driving on the job and you are injured due to the negligence of another driver, you could make a claim against that negligent driver. If you are injured in the course of your employment, you need advice from an attorney who specializes in workers compensation and you need it now!
