Crossover Cases: Personal Injury & Workers' Comp

Walnut Creek Crossover Case Attorney

When an employee suffers a workplace injury because of an accident on the job, the first solution that comes to mind is to file for workers' compensation. Though this may be the best choice for him or her, there is a downside to workers' comp. When an injured employee files a workers' compensation claim, they give up their right to sue their employer in a personal injury claim. Workers' comp can cover medical treatment and medical mileage, but oftentimes a personal injury settlement is greater than the amount an employee receives through workers' comp. So which is the better choice? Well, sometimes the answer is "both."

Understanding Crossover Cases

When liability for a workplace accident is shared by an employer and a third party, a crossover case may be possible. With more than 60 combined years of experience handling both workers' compensation and personal injury claims, our attorneys have become skilled in handling crossover cases. If you have been injured in a workplace accident involving a liable third party, find out how you could purse a combined workers' comp and personal injury case. Call Brand Peters LLP today.
