Am I Entitled to Additional Compensation?

Collecting Workers’ Compensation? You May Be Entitled to More

Workers’ compensation laws prevent workers who are injured on the job from pursuing claims against their employers. Medical expenses and lost wages are covered under the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance policy. However, many injured workers may ask themselves, “Am I entitled to additional compensation?” Negligent individuals or businesses that are not your employer may still be held financially responsible if their negligence contributes to your accident.
