    Fell over wires and pipes while on the job

    I was at work when I tripped over some wire and metal pipe. I suffered severe back pain and have had four back surgeries. I have been on workers compensation for eleven months. Do I still qualify for a settlement from the company?

    Typically when you file for workers comp, you give up your rights to sue the company. You should look at your Worker's Comp paperwork. It will tell you every option you have available to you.
