Wisconsin work injury lawyerEmployees who sustain an injury on the job are typically covered under the workers’ compensation system. Mostly, this is a positive thing; the employee’s medical expenses are covered and they may even be eligible to receive a portion of their regular wages from the employer’s insurance carrier. However, there are some potential disadvantages to accepting workers’ compensation. Learn how an experienced attorney can help you mitigate against them.

Overlooking Other Forms of Compensation

Perhaps the most frequently experienced disadvantage to accepting workers’ compensation is that employees often assume this is all they are entitled to receive. However, this may not be the case. Depending on the situation, injured workers may be eligible for compensation from a third-party, such as the owner of a facility, the manufacturer of defective equipment, or even a contracted company that was charged with overseeing the employee (i.e. construction foremen). If you have been injured on the job, go the extra mile; contact a seasoned attorney for an analysis of your case to determine if you may be eligible for other forms of compensation.
