When an injury results from an accident caused by the negligence of another, the injured party may have the right to bring a lawsuit against the negligent party. However, in California, when an injury happens on the job, regardless of whether it was caused by the negligence of another or not, the injured party may have the right to bring a workers compensation claim against their employer’s insurance company. This is because California workmans compensation is a no-fault benefits system. Sometimes, when a work related injury is caused by the negligence of a 3rd party, such as a products manufacturer, an employee of another company or some entity not considered to be the employer, the injured worker may have a right to bring a lawsuit against the negligent party along side their right to file a workers’ compensation claim. It is always important to consult with a lawyer about your personal rights when an injury is job related. It is also imperative that you seek advice quickly, because rights can be lost by not exercising them. This is true under work comp law and personal injury law.
