freeway constructionA construction worker suffered critical injuries Monday night in a hit-and-run crash in Riverside, California. The worker was setting up cones for a freeway project when the driver struck him and sped away from the scene before firefighters arrived. The driver was arrested on suspicion of DUI and felony hit-and-run.

The worker in this situation is able to file 2 claims:

 

  1. Workers' Compensation: All workers who are injured on-the-job are entitled to workers' compensation benefits. Most states have a no-fault system when it comes to work-related injuries. This means that you don't have to prove fault for the accident. You may be entitled to fully paid medical care, pay for lost time at work, or a cash settlement for your injuries.

  2. Personal Injury: Because the driver was clearly at fault, the worker can sue him. He would do this by filing a Personal Injury claim in Superior Court.

If you were hurt by a negligent party while working, don't hesitate to get in touch with a Warren County workers' comp lawyer. Don't leave it up to your employer or workers' comp representative to stand up for your rights. Their focus is to pay as little as possible on your work injury claim and get you back to work as soon as possible. At Manfred F. Ricciardelli, Jr., LLC, we'll help you understand your rights and determine if you are entitled to additional compensation in a third party personal injury claim.


Manfred Ricciardelli has 20 years of experience helping injured workers obtain compensation through both workers' compensation and third-party negligence claims. We offer a free, one-on-one consultation to discuss your work-related accident and injuries. Contact us at 973-285-1100 to schedule yours today.
