Workplace Injury Lawyers Serving Columbus, GA

You Work Hard. So Do We.

Workers’ compensation claims and personal injury claims often overlap. In many cases, you can pursue both at the same time: filing a workers’ comp claim with your employer and filing a personal injury claim against a third party that contributed to your injury. For example, your attorney may be able to pursue a workers’ compensation claim with your employer and a personal injury claim against a negligent equipment manufacturer.

If you suffer an injury while on the job or helping your employer outside of normal workplace hours, you will generally be able to seek workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits may include income replacement checks, medical care and disability compensation.

In most cases, an employee may pursue a workers’ compensation claim even if that employee may have contributed to causing their own injury, though some exceptions apply. During your free consultation with a Montlick attorney, we will examine the details of your situation and advise you on your specific legal rights.

What If the Accident Was Not My Employer’s Fault?

Sometimes, accidents are truly no one’s fault. For example, maybe you lift a heavy box in your warehouse job and your back gives out, causing you pain and making you unable to work. The workers’ comp system is a no-fault system, which removes the obstacle of proving fault by one’s employer. That means, if you were injured on the job, regardless of how it happened, you could be entitled to receive workers’ comp benefits. There are some exceptions to this, but a workers’ comp attorney can walk you through your options.

If there was an additional party responsible for your accident (for example, a defective piece of machinery contributed to your workplace injury), you could also have a personal injury claim in addition to your workers’ comp claim. Montlick lawyers are skilled, knowledgeable and experienced, and will explore every option to maximize the value of your claim, ultimately leading to more money in your pocket.

What if other parties besides my employer were responsible for my injuries?
