These injuries can range from bothersome to debilitating. Chances are your knee, shoulder or joint injury has been getting progressively worse.

Workers' Comp vs. Personal Injury Lawsuits
Worker’s compensation and personal injury lawsuits are two incredibly different animals. Most workers are entitled to certain benefits if they were injured at work, even if their employer wasn’t negligent in the situation. However, unlike with personal injury suits, the benefits are limited.
In a workers’ comp case, a worker is only entitled to be compensated for his or her medical bills and partially for the wages lost during recovery. There is no pain and suffering amount awarded to employees after a dangerous accident, no matter how traumatic. Workers’ comp cases can also be filed for large injuries as well as seemingly innocuous ones; for example, overexertion is often a reason to file a workers’ comp claim.
Personal injury lawsuits, on the other hand, are largely dependent on proving negligence. If a person was negligent and that negligence resulted in the injury of another individual, the injured individual can pursue a third-party personal injury lawsuit to recover damages. These lawsuits are used to compensate the individual for medical bills and lost wages, but they can also include things like pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. However, workers’ are often unable to sue their employers.
