What is the difference between personal injury and workers’ compensation cases?

Without prior legal experience, differentiating between workers’ compensation and personal injury cases is no simple task. Although it can change depending on the details of the case, the basic rule of thumb is this: if you suffered your injury at the workplace and it was not caused by any form of negligence, you should file workers’ compensation. Conversely, if you were injured at the workplace but the injury was caused by a faulty product or other act of negligence, you may want to instead consider a personal injury lawsuit.
