You are committed to your work, giving your time and effort every day. A safe environment is an underlying expectation—you never expect to be injured on the job. Unfortunately, workplace injuries happen more often than you’d think. In fact, over 5,000 workers die every year in workplace injuries in the United States. When you suffer a workplace injury, it can be devastating and overwhelming. A workplace injury lawsuit can help you get compensation for the damages you’ve suffered.
Your legal rights
The Workers Compensation Act provides benefits for workers who suffer an injury arising out of their employment. You should know, though, that the benefits available under the Act are often limited, and there is no right to a jury trial in a worker’s compensation case. However, if the injury was suffered because of the fault of a third party, the injured worker has the right to file a lawsuit against the third party and have a jury assess the damages owed to them. And separately, if you are a railroad employee injured on the job, the Federal Employee Liability Act, or FELA, governs available compensation and allows for the right to a jury trial.
