If you have been injured because of another person's negligence, you may well end up having to file suit in court to get fair compensation. The personal injury process can be long, and dealing with court calendars and the schedules of busy attorneys and other parties can make for an agonizing wait for justice. Personal injury cases do tend to progress in a fairly orderly manner, however, and it might help for you to gain an understanding of the steps necessary.
When you get injured at work, you are covered under workers compensation insurance. This insurance pays for your medical care to recover from your injuries and pays you wages throughout your recovery if you can't work. Problems can arise where you are denied benefits because it isn't clear your injuries are work related, or a medical examiner does not determine that your injuries are serious enough to keep you out of work.
