Workers’ Compensation Benefits – To qualify for Workers’ Comp benefits, you must make a work-injury claim against your employer through the Workers’ Compensation system. The Workers’ Comp system was put into place to say that you cannot file a lawsuit against your employer. The fact that workers’ compensation claims are strict liability claims is beneficial to you since the law also says that you have no obligation to prove your employer did anything wrong or contributed to your injury in any way.  888-529-8427


Workers’ Compensation Benefits In other words, you can get Workers’ Compensation benefits for any injury you suffer on the job regardless of your employer’s actions. The job of an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney at Tuggle, Schiro & Lichtenberger is to make sure you get all of the benefits that you deserve, including medical benefits, temporary or permanent disability benefits or death benefits if you have lost a family member to a warehouse or transportation accident. 888-529-8427


Personal Injury Lawsuit –The normal Workers’ Comp rules say you can’t sue your employer, but you could potentially sue a third party if someone else was to blame for your work accident. A personal injury lawsuit allows you to seek financial compensation that isn’t available through Workers’ Compensation, such as payment of damages for pain and suffering or for loss of companionship if your loved one was killed. 888-529-8427
