After an injury occurs in the workplace, it is important to determine exactly who is liable for the damage. In some cases the injured worker is accountable for his own injuries because of reckless behavior. Much of the time, however, the injuries are caused by a negligent coworker. If you have been injured because of a coworker’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses.
Filing for workers’ comp prevents you from pursuing a personal injury suit, but someone who has sustained grossly negligent or malicious injuries may find it better to seek damages for their pain and suffering. No matter what course of action you ultimately choose, you shouldn’t have to suffer and pay for someone else’s negligent conduct.
