Advocating For Injured Workers

Our law firm helps hardworking Jacksonville residents recover damages

You work hard every day, and you should be able to expect a safe environment in the workplace. Unfortunately, for too many workers in Jacksonville and throughout Florida, that's not always the case. On-the-job accidents can cause serious and sometimes fatal injuries, and you may be left reeling, unable to go back to work or deal with mounting medical expenses.

Workers' compensation provides some relief for people injured on the job. However, you may also be entitled to file a personal injury claim to recover additional compensation for your injuries. Such a claim can help with costs not covered by workers' compensation, such as pain and suffering.

What is a third-party workplace claim?

In general, you cannot file a personal injury claim against your employer for an on-the-job accident because those injuries are covered under workers' compensation. The tradeoff with workers' compensation is that you are entitled to benefits on a no-fault basis - that is, you do not need to prove that your employer was negligent - but those benefits are more limited than those available in a personal injury claim.

However, that protection only applies to your employer and anyone working directly for your employer. If a third party was responsible for your on-the-job injury, you can file a personal injury claim against that person, just as you could in any other injury case.

Some examples of third-party claims include:

It can be difficult to know whether you have a third-party claim, and if you do, actually recovering from the negligent third party may be even harder. That's why you need an experienced work accident attorney with a history of successfully resolving these cases. That's why you need to call Pajcic & Pajcic.
