Multiple Claims from One Accident
Injured workers generally do not have the right to sue their employers. But there are times when an injured worker can obtain additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit in addition to a workers’ compensation claim where the injury was caused by third party (someone other than your employer).
You can also receive additional workers’ compensation benefits if your employer violates a specific workplace safety requirement (VSSR) established by law or by the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.
If you have been injured at work, the lawyers at Seaman & Associates offer a free consultation to evaluate your case and determine if you have additional claims. We represent injured workers throughout Ohio.
