A general hospital in Jefferson County is suing a driver for workers’ compensation, a driver who allegedly ran over an on-duty hospital employee. According to the lawsuit, last year the female employee was run over by the defendant as she was making her way through a parking garage. The impact caused the female worker to sustain spinal cord injuries all the way up to her neck, thus requiring her to collect workers’ compensation along with other fees, says the claim. The hospital is suing to recover this compensation from the responsible driver, as well as to receive medical benefits, medical bill review fees, and more.

If anyone is injured in their line of work, they are owed benefits from workers’ compensation, benefits which might cover medical bills, supplemental earnings, and disability (temporary, permanent partial, or permanent total). A family who has lost a loved one in a workplace accident can also claim benefits from an employer’s insurance. However, no matter how much you may deserve this compensation, getting what you deserve may not be as straightforward as it should be. If an employer or insurer is not cooperating, denying you the coverage you are owed, then you may require the assistance of a Shreveport personal injury lawyer to fight for your rights.

In addition to workers’ compensation, you might be able to go after the party responsible for your injuries as well, with a personal injury lawsuit. If another party is deemed responsible for your accident, then there might be a chance to go after him or her for additional compensation.
