Why shouldn’t I just file for workers’ compensation?
In some cases, the state law may provide an opportunity for a person to file for workers’ compensation or file for compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. While workers’ compensation may seem like the safer option, there is a high possibility that a claim may still be denied and further legal action may be required. Additionally, a personal injury lawsuit may be able to yield a greater award, better protecting an injured individual’s finances.
