Am I eligible for compensation if I’ve been injured at my job?
Depending on the situation which led to your workplace injury, you may be eligible to receive compensation above and beyond that provided by a worker’s compensation claim. Whether or not you are eligible will depend on whether a personal injury lawyer is able to prove your injury happened as a result of another party’s negligence.
It’s not uncommon for an employer to give unreliable information regarding your right to compensation, so it’s best that you consult with an experienced attorney before accepting any compensation they offer.
