Employers hold Workers Compensation personal injury insurance for a reason and that reason is to insure their employees against personal injuries and accidents and if an accident does arise. If you have sustained a personal injury at work, it is your legal right to make a personal injury claim and regardless who is at fault, you may still be entitled to make a claim for the personal injury sustained in the work place.
If your personal injury leaves you with permanent damage (Eg: a scar, loss of limb, or an injury resulting in a life change) you may receive a lump sum payout. If it can be proven your personal injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may also be entitled to make a Common Law Claim.
