    Do I Have An Accident Case or Workers’ Compensation Case?Most first time callers are not certain whether they have an accident case or Workers’ Compensation case through their employer’s insurance company or both. Simply stated, through Workers’ Compensation if you are injured on the job, you may make a claim for medical expenses, lost wages, and in certain cases an award for a scheduled loss of use to a body part. You can receive this money even if you never missed time from work or if you’ve already returned to work.

    You may also be able to file a law suit for personal injuries, pain and suffering against a responsible third party. Most people call this an “accident case.”What am I entitled to? An easy explanation is through example. Suppose that you were a construction worker that fell from a ladder or scaffold while working. As a worker injured on the construction site you would be entitled to file a claim for lost wages and medical expenses through your employer’s Workers” Compensation policy. In addition you may also be entitled to file a law suit against the owner of the construction site, and responsible contractors for money damages for pain and suffering, and economic losses.

    At Oresky & Associates, PLLC.,we will work with your Workers’ Compensation attorneys to ensure the best possible result on both of your claims.
