Pain and Suffering Claims

Pain and suffering are very real when you are injured, especially if the injury is serious and disabling. Did you know that in workers’ compensation cases you can’t collect for pain and suffering for your injuries? It doesn’t seem fair. But sometimes you can collect for pain and suffering for an on-the-job injury if the injury was caused by the carelessness of someone else other than your employer or co-worker. These are called third-party claims and they are separate from a workers’ compensation claim. To find out if you are entitled to collect for pain and suffering caused from a work-related injury, call Segar & Sciortino today for a free consultation.
