Regardless of the setting, a workplace accident must be evaluated from two primary perspectives in order to determine how the injured person will be compensated for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering:
- If there is a workers' compensation claim, how can the injured worker's expected benefits be maximized?
- Is there also a third-party liability claim in an on-the-job construction or industrial accident involving a subcontractor or equipment manufacturer?
