There are instances that happen when employers either knowingly or unknowingly place employees in unsafe working conditions. Workers are often faced with challenges they shouldn't encounter. This can lead to suffering in multiple ways: injuries that demand ongoing medical treatment, lost wages, even the inability to work completely. These accidents take their toll physically, financially and mentally.
Often times, workplace injuries are simple accidents. In this kind of situation, you will likely be able to obtain workers' compensation to help with some of the financial stress after your injury. There are other cases where your employer may have knowingly subjected you to an unsafe situation and failed to take the proper safety precautions - in circumstances like these you may be entitled to seek compensation. There are also instances where a third party (like a company responsible for machinery you operate) has contributed to or caused negligence of their own, resulting in your injury. In these cases, you may also be able to bring a lawsuit against that party, even if you're currently receiving workers' compensation benefits at that time.
