Baton Rouge Work-Related Injury Attorney
Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
If you have been injured while at work, you will be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. One benefit to workers’ compensation is that you do not have to prove that your employer was at fault for your injuries. A major drawback of workers’ compensation is that you will only receive a part of your lost wages, and you will not recover money for your pain and suffering.
On the other hand, if someone other than your employer was at least partly responsible for your work-related injury, you have the right to file a personal injury claim. For instance, if you were driving as a part of your work duties and you were in a car accident, you can file a personal injury claim against the responsible party. You will have the chance to recover all of your lost wages and money for your pain and suffering.
