What is the difference between personal injury and workers’ compensation?
Many people confuse personal injury cases with workers’ compensation, but the two are actually very different. Understanding this distinction can be difficult without the help of a knowledgeable legal representative, causing you to pursue the wrong type of compensation. If you have been injured in an accident in your workplace where negligence wasn’t a contributing factor, you should file a workers’ compensation lawsuit. On the other hand, if you have been injured because of someone else’s negligent actions or because of a faulty product, you should file a personal injury lawsuit.
