How Is Work-Related Injury Different To Personal Injury

The major difference between these two is the question of who’s at fault. As an injured worker, you’re entitled to receive workers’ compensation even if you are at fault for the injury, since the premise is that you won’t be injured if you weren’t on the job.

However, for personal injury law to come into place, someone has to be responsible/liable for the injury.

Yet, both these laws can be enacted at the same time when your work-related injury happens because of a third party, such as a manufacturer who has created a defective product that resulted in your injury at work.

A meticulous Allentown personal injury lawyer can help you determine if you have a third-party personal injury claim along with your work injury claim.
