HOW DO YOU TELL IF YOUR CLAIM IS PERSONAL INJURY OR WORKERS COMPENSATION?

The short answer is that if your injury occurred while you were performing job duties related to your employment then it is a workers compensation claim. If you were not working at the time of the accident, then it is most likely a personal injury claim. However there are times when you may have both a workers compensation claim and a personal injury claim. For example you are working and an outside  vendor comes to your place of employment is negligent and causes you injury, or you are driving in a company car for work purposes, and another driver is negligent and causes a car accident and injures you.  You may then have a workers compensation claim and  a personal injury claim.
