Title: How to Differentiate Workers Compensation Claim and Personal Injury Claim?


1
How to Differentiate Workers Compensation Claim
and Personal Injury Claim?
2
One of the most common questions people ask about
personal injury claims and workers compensation
is what is the main difference between the two?
Is there an easy way to distinguish the
two? Even though both of them (work comp and
personal injury claim) require an injury to being
with, there are a few important differences that
every individual should be aware of. Keep reading
to find out.
3
Fault Vs. No-Fault
One of the major differences between a personal
injury claim and workers compensation is a fault.
In a personal injury case, there has to be a
persona at fault, while no one has to be at fault
in order for an injured employee to receive
workers compensation.
A personal injury claim cannot exist without a
person at fault. On the other hand, workers
compensation is based on injury and injury only.
If you want to learn more about workers
compensation benefits, speak with a Los Angeles
workers compensation attorney at Law Offices of
Kropach Kropach today. Schedule a free initial
consultation and receive much-needed legal
counselling.

Different Damages
Another big difference between a personal injury
claim and workers compensation is the type of
damages that you can get compensated for. In a
personal injury case, you can get compensated for
Lost earnings
Lost earning capacity
Medical bills
Permanent impairment
Pain and suffering
Loss of enjoyment of life

Workers compensation benefits cover the following
Work comp covers no pain and suffering.
6
You Cannot Sue Vs. You Can Sue
The third difference is related to suing if you
apply for workers compensation, you, therefore,
agree that you will not sue your employer. It is
a fair trade you receive your work comp
benefits, and you lose the right to sue your
employer.
In a personal injury case, if you do not sue, you
will most likely not receive your compensation.
The whole concept of workers compensation is
designed to protect employers from lawsuits while
ensuring that the employees are taken care of. At
the same time, a personal injury case is based on
a lawsuit without it, one may not receive the
much-needed compensation.

If you want to learn more about a personal injury
claim, or the workers compensation, all you have
to do is get in touch with a workers compensation
lawyers in Los Angeles today. Give them a call,
schedule your free consultation and learn how you
can file a successful claim.
Keep in mind that even if your initial work comp
claim is denied, an attorney can help you file an
appeal. You can still obtain your benefits if the
appeal is successful. Do not give up, and always
hire an attorney to deal with legal problems,
rather than trying to deal with it on your own.
