Workers’ Comp vs. Personal Injury Claims

10.0 Superb Avvo Rating​Depending on the circumstances of your work-related injury, you may find yourself faced with a choice: Do you file a workers’ compensation claim, or do you file a personal injury claim?

Member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates ForumIf you were injured due to a negligent third party, you may be able to file a personal injury claim. If, for example, you were struck by a truck driver who had improperly loaded cargo, you could sue the driver or owner of the truck. If you slipped and fell in a hallway of a restaurant with no caution signs, you could sue the owner or manager. In either case, you must prove the other party’s negligence led to your injury.

If you caused your own workplace injury or your injury was the result of an accident that did not result from negligence, your only option may be to file a workers’ compensation claim. A workers’ compensation claim does not require you to prove liability. Regardless of who or what caused your injuries, you can receive benefits as long as the injury took place while you were at work.

What Benefits Does Workers’ Compensation Provide?

Depending on the nature and severity of your illnesses or injuries, you may qualify for a variety of workers’ compensation benefits.

These include:


  • Medical Treatment
  • Temporary Total Disability
  • Temporary Partial Disability
  • Permanent Partial Disability
  • Relapse or Recurrence
  • Discretionary Benefits
  • Job Retraining
