Workers’ Compensation Is Different From A Lawsuit
If you were injured while working at your job in Pennsylvania, you may be wondering how to go about recovering compensation for your injuries. Many of the questions and concerns that you face are the same issues that Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo’s many past clients have faced.
We have years of experience representing injured workers, and we are prepared to address your questions according to your individual circumstances. Contact us for personalized answers to queries such as:
- Will you have to sue your employer?
- Will this mean a breach of loyalty?
- Will your employer retaliate against you for filing a workers’ compensation claim? How can you protect yourself from this type of retaliation?
- Is there someone else other than your employer that you can file a claim against? If so, who? And how?
Generally speaking, we can reassure you here that if you file a workers’ compensation claim, this is not equivalent to suing your employer. Rather, you will be making a claim from your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier. This is similar to the situation after a car accident, when you make a claim against another driver’s insurance company. Likewise, after a tornado strikes a house, the homeowners collect compensation from their homeowners insurance. Workers’ compensation insurance exists precisely to provide a safety net for workers while protecting employers from costly lawsuits.
