If I Was In A Car Or Truck Accident While Working, Could I Have Both A Work Comp Case And A Personal Injury Case?

Yes, if the accident was caused by the negligence of the other driver (s). You may bring a personal injury (third party) suit against the driver who caused the accident, in addition to a workers’ compensation claim against your employer.

The personal injury suit involves negligence (ie, fault) whereas your work comp claim does not. You may recover money in both cases but the work comp insurer will have a subrogation lien against your third party personal injury case- in other words, they will get reimbursed from that recovery to the extent they paid out benefits in your work comp claim.

The issues can become complicated, so call or email me now for a free consultation. I can refer you to an excellent personal injury attorney to maximize your settlement! Michael W. Cardamone- Top Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Attorney. (215) 206-9068  Email at mcardamone@krasno.com
