A Personal Injury Claim Is Different From Workers’ Compensation
In West Virginia, nearly every employee who is injured at work is entitled to workers’ compensation. This is true whether or not the employer was at fault. However, if your employer knowingly violated a safety policy or law and you were injured as a result, you may be entitled to collect compensation over and above the benefits provided by workers’ compensation.
Additionally, if you are working off site, the owner of the property is responsible for providing a reasonably safe working environment. If the property owner failed to provide you with a safe working environment and you were harmed, you may also have a personal injury claim.
