If you were injured while you were working, you may be able to pursue both a personal injury claim and a worker’s comp claim. Do not let your worker’s compensation claim limit your recovery.

Many worker’s comp attorneys handle only worker’s comp cases and some personal injury attorneys only handle personal injury cases. It is perfectly fine for you to have two attorneys handling your case – one for workers comp and one for personal injury. If you find an attorney that handles both workers comp and personal injury, you can have that one attorney handle both claims.

If you end up having two attorneys, it is important that you let both of your attorneys know about your situation so that they can workout any potential issues that may arise during the course of both of your cases.

At Lem Garcia Law, we only handle personal injury claims. We do not handle workers compensation cases because our practice is focused on handling personal injury claims only and if we were to handle any other types of cases, it would lessen our focus on personal injury.

If you find yourself in this type of situation, we will be happy to provide you guidance on your personal injury case and refer you to a worker’s compensation attorney that focuses only on workers’ compensations cases. We believe that clients are best represented when their attorney is able to focus on one area of law.
