What is the difference between personal injury and workers’ compensation?
Differentiating between the different subsections of personal injury law can be very confusing to do on your own. In many cases, an individual may not know whether he or she should file a civil lawsuit or pursue workers’ compensation. If you suffer an injury in the workplace where negligence was not involved you should file a workers’ compensation lawsuit. On the other hand, if you suffer an injury form a faulty machine or product in the workplace, you should pursue a civil lawsuit.
