Should You File a Personal Injury Lawsuit Instead?

Many of Alvarez Law Office’s clients assume that if they have been injured at work they are only entitled to workers’ personal injury benefits. This is not always the case. In many cases, it is possible to bring a personal injury lawsuit against a third-party. The benefit of filing a lawsuit is that the injured or ill worker often receives more money. The disability payments provided by workers’ personal injury insurance are capped by the state, meaning the maximum amount of money an injured worker can receive in Indiana is $780 per week. Depending upon the severity of the injury, there may also a limit to the amount of time that the employer’s insurance has to pay the injured party.

When Should You Go Beyond Workers’ Personal Injury?

Many different people, products, and equipment are involved in a normal workspace. Each of these parties are responsible for maintaining safe work conditions. If the manufacturer of a machine or piece of equipment used in the workplace was defective and caused the worker harm, the manufacturer is liable. The injured worker is entitled to sue the manufacturer outside of the score of his workers’ personal injury benefits. For instance, in a recent case Alvarez Law Office won a $1,850,000.00 settlement when a construction employee was injured.

Defective machines and equipment on a work site aren’t the only reasons a worker could bring about a lawsuit against a third-party. If a worker becomes ill or injured as a result of exposure to toxic chemicals at the workplace, they are entitled to sue the manufacturer of the substance. For instance, if a worker sustained chemical burns on the job site, the worker may be able to sue the manufacturer of the toxic substance. In other cases, prolonged exposure over the course of many years to a dangerous chemical can cause illnesses such as cancer later in life. It’s especially important to contact an attorney in these instances. These cases are more complex and require legal expertise.
