Becoming injured in an auto accident is a traumatic event for Washington residents and leaves emotional and physical scars that can take both a long time and a lot of medical treatment to recover from. Medical bills result from treatment and one way to recoup medical bills is by pursuing a personal injury lawsuit against the driver at fault for the accident. However, one reason accident victims hesitate from getting the justice they deserve is because they are also at fault in the accident and are unsure of the laws surrounding their crash.
Whether one is passionately engaged in their profession or is about to switch job, one of the main reasons California residents go to work is to earn a living. When a workplace injury prevents someone from working for a period of time, workers' compensation insurance is supposed to kick in and cover lost wages, along with the expenses of medical treatment. However, only those injuries that were incurred while the employee was doing something on behalf of their employer will be covered by workers' compensation.
