Report the Incident to Human Resources
Accidents happen, but some accidents occur as a result of the negligent actions of others. If you are injured in an accident that was caused by someone else's negligence, you may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit. These lawsuits allow you to seek financial compensation from the party at-fault for causing your accident.
While most people know that compensation for medical bills and lost wages can be sought through a personal injury case, few people know that general compensatory damages can also be asked for when filing a lawsuit.
