- Workers' Compensation May Not Be Your Only Option -
Workers' compensation is often not an injured worker’s only option. When injuries occur at work, a worker may not sue his employer, rather, he must seek compensation through the workers compensation system. However, these benefits may be completely inadequate to compensate you for injuries which have a long term effect on your body, mental health, earning ability and quality of life. If you or someone you know is struggling to recover from a construction injury, call Wachnik Law LLC at 847-892-5060 today.
The attorneys at Wachnik Law LLC will help you seek compensation from every available source. In addition to workers’ compensation benefits, compensation could also come from a third-party lawsuit. Thus, if the accident that caused your injury was because of the negligence of a third-party, and not your employer, you may be able to file a lawsuit in the circuit court and recovery substantially more compensation. Because of these nuances and possibilities, it is extremely important that you contact an attorney such as Eryk Wachnik to assess the facts and see if a third-party lawsuit is possible in your case.
