When someone refers to a personal injury, accident or falls attorney they are most commonly referring to a civil lawsuit. One in which there was an element of negligence from a private party. That private party that the civil law-suit is being filed against can often also be a governmental or business entity. For example, if someone falls at the post office or on an icy business parking lot. Workers compensation claim lawyers on the other hand are dealing with injuries that happened at the workplace to an actual employee that is covered by the employers workers comp. insurance. There are cases in which an employer does not have adequate coverage in which a civil personal injury style case may be at hand. To expand further, if someone gets into an accident or falls on someones property, they can sue for negligence. Usually the case can be resolved privately between the parties, through settlement with an attorney or waste case court. Work-place injuries in which the employer has insurance coverage can similarly be resolved between the employee and employers insurance company. But just like civil cases, often the settlement is not a lucrative one and they may end up in court. In workers compensation claim cases going to court is even more common than personal injury cases. The reason is that in civil injury cases the attorneys of the two sides will usually come to a settlement on the terms of the negligence. In workers comp. claims however the multi-million dollar insurance companies try to low-ball the compensation paid out and are very stubborn. This means that usually the only way to really get a high pay-out for the client is to take them to court. For more questions, call or visit us today for a free consultation. Categories: Legal
