It is really difficult to answer sucn a general question.   Most injury cases have compensation as part of their recovery, whether it be compensation for pain and suffering or compensation for lost wages.   However, you can distinguish between a workers' compensation case and a personal injury case, if that is what you are asking. Different law would apply to the two types of cases.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
