A work-related injury does not necessarily mean you are only entitled to workers' compensation benefits for your injuries. Work-related injuries are often the result of the negligence of a third party, such as another involved driver in a motor vehicle collision, the manufacturer of a defective machine, or the owner of a property or their maintenance company that either created a hazardous condition or neglected to keep an area safe.
In those situations, in addition to your workers' compensation claims, you also have a potential claim against the negligent third parties for your personal injury. In such a case, additional compensation may be available that is not normally payable under the workers' compensation laws such as for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, embarrassment, inconvenience, and loss of aid, society, and companionship with your spouse.
