If you get hurt in an accident while you are performing your job, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your injury-related expenses through workers’ compensation. If you are not entitled to workers’ compensation because your employer is not required to carry it or because you are an independent contractor, you may still seek compensation for your workplace injury. An experienced personal injury attorney can determine whether you have grounds for a workers’ compensation claim or a personal injury claim and following this, how to proceed with your claim. The process for filing a personal injury claim is different from the process for filing a workers’ compensation claim – do not invalidate your claim by following the incorrect procedure.
