Mandated by the state of Pennsylvania, workers’ compensation is an insurance program designed to compensate employees harmed on the job. Compensation is available even if the employee is believed to be partially at fault for the injury. Because employees have the right to compensation without proving fault, they must agree not to sue their employer for damages.
Personal injury cases are similar in many respects to workers’ compensation cases, but they do not occur when the victim is on the job. Another significant difference is the role of fault; in a personal injury case, a preponderance of the evidence must indicate that the victim’s injuries were caused by negligence or negative willful intent. Technically, personal injury cases can happen at a place of employment, but not while the victim is on the job. More commonly, however, the victim is a customer, patient, or resident, as in premise liability, medical malpractice, and nursing home abuse cases. Other types of personal injury cases include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, dog bites, and slip and fall.
The steps to obtaining compensation will vary considerably based on whether your case is classified as workers’ compensation or personal injury. It is in your best interest to work with somebody who possesses a thorough understanding of both legal areas. Your case will rest in good hands if you turn to Kelly, Goodman and Tillger, a Pennsylvania law firm with an impressive track record of success.
