The Difference between Workers’ Compensation and Personal Injury
If you suffered an injury while working in construction, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, which are only limited to medical expenses and lost wages.
You cannot obtain damages for your pain and suffering from workers’ compensation, and you cannot sue your employer to recover those damages. However, if a third party who is partially responsible for the construction accident and therefore liable for the injuries that the worker suffered as a result, you may seek additional damages such as pain and suffering.
- Other parties which may be liable for a construction workers’ injuries or death include, but not limited to, the following:
- Construction site managers or foremen
- General contractors
- Property owners
- Maintenance companies
- Drivers of other vehicles
- Manufacturers of defective equipment
If you receive compensation for your injuries through a third-party personal injury settlement or verdict, it could affect your workers’ compensation benefits. Our Toledo personal injury lawyers are experienced at handling both types of cases and can work to minimize the impact of your benefits.
