Some people get injured while driving for work or for a rideshare program. In those cases, your choice is not between Personal Injury and Workers’ Compensation, a claim should be filed for both. If done properly, the claims will work hand-in-hand, with Workers’ Compensation stepping in for No-Fault. In fact, it is important to be extra careful with timing because No-Fault will likely deny covering a claim that should have been filed under Workers’ Compensation. A good attorney with knowledge on Workers’ Compensation law is key to getting the compensation you need. Having the same attorney represent you for both claims is immensely important to making sure nothing gets lost in the cracks. For instance, Workers’ Compensation provides benefits in the form of paying medical bills and lost wages, but does not compensate you for any pain and suffering. That is where a civil claim (or Personal Injury Claim) comes into play.
