Many accidents that the lawyer sees take place while someone is working. Generally, workers’ compensation will pay the medical bills and most of the lost wages resulting from this accident, regardless of fault. Generally, workers’ compensation is the exclusive remedy that employees have against their employer in these accidents. In some of these accidents, however, the fault of the accident is someone other than a co-employee or the employer.
For example, if someone is working and is involved in an automobile accident due another vehicle’s fault, workers’ compensation will generally apply to that case; however, there is also a case that can be made against the person that caused the accident. This is a work-place accident. Another example may be when a worker is sent by his employer to a place of business, to buy something or for some other purpose. If there is some defect at the property or dangerous condition like water on the floor, the employee may have a work-place accident claim against the business where they fell. That claim would be in addition to any workers’ compensation claim.
There can be various other types of accidents – defective equipment, falling objects and so forth – that happen at work and are caused by someone other than a co-employee or the employer and in these scenarios, the injured person may have the right to fair compensation for their injuries.
