Additional Means of Recovery for a Virginia Work Injury

When you’ve been injured in a work injury, the first thing that your Workers’ Compensation claims attorney should do is explore other channels of recovery.  

For instance, if you were injured in an automobile accident while you were at work or in the midst of performing a job-related duty and a non-coworker was at fault for the accident, you have grounds to file an automobile accident claim. Similarly, if you were injured at work because a piece of equipment you were using was faulty or defective, you may have grounds to file a products liability claim.  

You might be eligible for a premises liability claim if where you were hurt was any place that isn’t owned by your employer:  

  • a contractor’s shipping yard;
  • a parking lot;
  • a store; and
  • any building that is owned by someone other than the person or company who employs you.  

Your attorney can help you by examining your case and discovering all of the at-fault parties for your accident. 

Workers’ Compensation claims don’t necessarily make you whole after an injury, so it’s vital to your financial security and the future of your continued health and wellness that you consult with a lawyer who can rise to the task of looking outside Workers’ Compensation for benefits and who can coordinate those efforts with your workers comp claim to get you the maximum recovery possible.
