What Is The Difference Between Personal Injury and On The Job Injury?

Personal injury is an overarching term for an injury that occurs to a person’s body. A personal injury could occur on the job. It could occur while you’re driving home. But the main different between a on-the-job injury is what they call a worker’s compensation claim. A worker’s compensation claim in the state of Illinois, you do not have to show fault or negligence. If you were working and you were injured you have the right to file a claim. That claim may also relate to a negligence suit. For example, if you are a truck driver and you are driving through town and somebody runs through a red light and hits you, you could file both a worker’s compensation claim and a personal injury negligence law suit.

The difference is there. Worker’s compensations claims tend to be easier to prove. There’s no fault showing. However, you could have one, that other, or both.
