Your options after a landscaping injury

If you have ever experienced any type of injury on a landscaping job, you might be worried about how to cover your medical bills and other costs. If you are not able to work or have suffered permanent impairment, you can take workers comp legal action. It will help you get maximum compensation for the pain or loss that a landscape workplace injury caused. 

Here are some of the ideal options to recover monetary damages:

Are you an employee as opposed to working as an independent contractor? If yes, you are eligible to make a workers comp claim for your landscape injuries. In this option, you don’t have to show that your employer was careless or did anything wrong that contributes to your injury. 
The worker’s compensation benefits are intended to ensure that medical bills are covered and the permanent impairment doesn’t cause financial ruin.

if there is a third part or non-employer that caused you harm, then you can file a personal injury claim. In this option, you need to prove that someone did something negligent, careless, or wrong in some way that injured you.
