If you or a loved one suffered another type of injury not listed above, you may still qualify to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit and demand compensation from a liable party.

Personal Injury Claims Let You Pursue Accident-Related Damages
If another party, or multiple parties, share liability for your work injury, you may qualify to file a claim or lawsuit, which would allow you to pursue compensation for your damages.
With a personal injury case, you may qualify to receive financial awards for the following types of damages:
- Current and future costs for medical treatment
- Current and future lost wages, including benefits and pensions
- Emotional distress, which can include depression, insomnia, and anxiety
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Property damage costs, such as costs to repair or replace your vehicle if you used it for work purposes
- Reduced earning potential
- Permanent disability
- Diminished quality of life
- Loss of consortium
You may claim other damages not listed above, as each personal injury case is unique to the individual filing it. Additionally, if you lost a loved one in a work-related accident, you may qualify to file a wrongful death action on their behalf and pursue other damages, such as costs to arrange your loved one’s funeral and mental anguish.
Our legal team will be thorough in how we estimate the value of your damages, as this will serve as our goal when fighting for compensation for you.
