IMPORTANT: With some accidents at work, the injured person may have grounds for a personal injury claim in addition to a workers’ compensation claim. For example, if negligence on the part of someone who doesn’t work at the company caused the injury, a third-party personal injury claim may be appropriate. A personal injury claim may also lead to significantly more compensation than the benefits provided through workers’ comp. At The Law Office of Jonathan W. Doolan, we handle workers’ compensation claims and personal injury claims. We can help you decide if a personal injury claim is right for your situation.
