Several of the cases my workers’ compensation law office in Atlanta is handling involve clients who have had injuries at work caused by another party’s negligence. Thus, they have a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury lawsuit stemming from the same injury or injuries.
Injuries stemming from trucking or other motor vehicle accidents often present these issues if the victim drives a truck for a living or is traveling for his employment. “Slip and fall” accidents can also lend themselves to negligence lawsuits on top of a workers’ comp claim, assuming the injured party fell while working.
If you’ve had a workplace injury in metro Atlanta and think there could be a personal injury lawsuit and a workers’ comp claim, please contact my office, which handles workplace accidents in Georgia and partners with Atlanta personal injury lawyers.
