Industrial accident injury claims involve victims that sustain injuries in the course of their work. The claim may be made under the Work Injury Compensation Act (“WICA”) or under the Common Law. We are here to assist you in the process of claiming for a workplace injury.
For an action to be commenced under the Common Law, there must be negligence or fault on the part of the other party. Without proof of negligence, it is advisable to make a claim under WICA which allows compensation regardless of fault. However, an injured party must first withdraw his action under WICA if he/she intends to commence a subsequent action under the Common Law. At Cosmas LLC, we can assist you through the process of such a claim.
