A serious work injury can affect you for the rest of your life. Your future financial security and the security of your family may depend on the decisions you make in the coming weeks and months. It only makes sense to discuss your options with an experienced personal injury attorney.

Do I Have Options in Addition to Workers' Compensation?
In many types of accidents, you do have options beyond workers' compensation.
Workers' compensation offers benefits for people who suffer an on-the-job injury or occupational illness regardless of fault. However, these benefits are limited and do not provide any money for losses such as pain and suffering. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may also have the option of filing a personal injury lawsuit against the person or entity that caused your injury. One example is an injury covered under West Virginia or Ohio's "deliberate intent" statute. Bordas & Bordas has handled dozens of such claims over the years, including landmark results such as Evans v. Allied Waste.
