Upon being referred to the guys at Kohan & Bablove Injury Attorneys, I spoke with Jesse about my case, and from the get go he was super hands on and a genuine guy who treats you like family and cares for the well being of his clients. I would definitely recommend Jesse and his team to one of my friends or family members!

As a worker, you have the right to expect a standard of safety whenever you’re performing your work duties. Unfortunately, though, this expectation is not always met, and as a result, you may suffer injuries or damages at work.

In such an event, you have every right to expect compensation and benefits to aid in your recovery. And while workers compensation benefits are a viable option in some cases, there are other situations in which filing that type of claim is not the most effective course of action.

At this point, you may be wondering whether you can file a personal injury claim for a work accident. Below, the attorneys at Kohan & Bablove Injury Attorneys share the information you need to know.

The Exceptions to Workers Compensation

Most employers are required to carry workers compensation insurance for their employees. And while almost all accidents that occur on the job are covered by this policy, there are some extenuating circumstances that may make you eligible for personal injury compensation, which can provide significantly more compensation.

Some examples of workplace accidents that may warrant a personal injury claim include the following:

  • Injuries brought about by defective products
  • Injuries brought about by toxic substances
  • Injuries brought about by malicious or intentional conduct from your employer
  • Injuries brought about by a third party, excluding your employer

You can also file a personal injury claim if you were injured in an on-the-job accident and your employer doesn’t carry or isn’t required to carry workers compensation insurance.
