Is it possible to have a personal injury claim and a workers’ compensation claim at the same time?
Absolutely, and about twenty percent of my cases are that. A typical example is when a truck driver driving down the road is hit by another truck and he gets injuries. He receives workers’ compensation benefits, but at the same time we pursue what we call a third party case against the other truck driver. It can come in any type of scenario as long as the injury occurs in the course of employment and what makes our firm a little bit different from some other firms in this area is that we have experience in handling all types of cases so we are able to handle the work comp end of it and the third party end of it at the same time.
