Workman Comp & Personal Injury
The biggest and most important difference between a personal injury claim and a workers’ compensation claim is that a personal injury claim is based on fault while a workers’ comp case is not.
Personal Injury Lawsuits:
You Must Prove Someone Was at Fault for Your Injury
To understand the concept of fault in a personal injury claim, consider a typical slip-and-fall case. Simply because you slipped and fell on someone else’s property doesn’t mean that the person who owns the property (or anyone else for that matter) was negligent. Accidents, where no one is at fault, do happen.
In order to recover damages for slipping on someone else’s property, you and your lawyer must prove that that other person negligently maintained the property. In other words, you must show that the other party did something wrong. Similarly, if you are in a car accident, you can only recover damages from the other driver if the other driver was at fault.
Workers' Comp Cases:
Fault is Not Required
In a workers’ compensation case, any employee injured on the job is entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, with some very limited exceptions. Workers’ compensation has nothing to do with fault. You don’t need to prove that your employer or your co-workers did anything wrong in order for you to receive workers’ compensation benefits. Even if you were negligent, and your negligence caused your injury, you’re still entitled to receive workers’ compensation
