An on-the-job injury is an injury suffered by an employee while working. On-the-job injuries can occur by accident, injury or occupational disease and may be covered by Workers' Compensation laws, tort law or both.
Workers' Compensation laws provide benefits to workers and their dependents when they have suffered injury or death arising out of a work environment. These benefits include medical benefits, weekly or biweekly income, vocational rehabilitation, permanent disability compensation and death benefits. These benefits, in cases of serious injuries, may be substantially lower than the injured worker is entitled to under tort law. However, under California law, an employee is precluded from suing the employer for on-the-job injuries in nearly all situations.
In cases where an employee has sustained an on-the-job injury caused by someone other than the employer, the injured employee may sue such other person (third party) in tort law. Third party cases may fall into categories such as traffic accidents, defective products, defective equipment or the exposure to toxic substances.
Every on-the-job injury should be evaluated to determine if a third party claim exists. At Bisnar|Chase we have an outstanding reputation for finding and pursuing third party liability claims. We offer FREE evaluation of serious on-the-job injuries to determine if a third party claims exist. We are experienced in coordinating third party claims and workers' compensation benefits to get the best result possible for our clients.
