Were You Injured On the Job?

A workplace injury is one that takes place within the scope of employment. If you were injured while you were clocked in, sitting at your desk or unloading cargo from shelves in a warehouse, it is obvious that you were injured on the job.

What if you were injured while driving from one office location belonging to your employer to another such office in your own car? What if you were injured while playing basketball at a company outing? What if you were injured in the parking lot of your employer’s factory or office building?

The precise details of your case will determine clear answers about negligence, liability and sources of compensation. Depending on the facts, you may be able to bring a workers’ compensation claim, a personal injury claim, or both.
