The Workers Compensation rules for injuries that happen at work that were caused by a coworker have changed recently and if you have suffered an injury at work that was caused by a coworker it will be worth your time to speak with a Workers Compensation Lawyer about your case.
Previously if you brought a Workers Compensation case to a Workers Compensation Lawyer where the injury was caused by one of your coworkers, your Workers Compensation Lawyer would have been limited to solely filing a Workers Compensation claim on your behalf. Recently, there have been changes to this rule.
Now, if you suffer a Workers Compensation injury that was caused by a coworkers bad act, it may be possible for your Workers Compensation Lawyer to file a suit against your coworker for the accident, in addition to the Workers Compensation claim. Of course, this brings up issues of how your coworker would pay damages and whether you wish to sue a coworker at all but there is no harm in speaking with a Workers Compensation Lawyer to determine all of your options.
