Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
You were injured at works, so it would be a workers comp claim. Since during an unpaid lunch period, you could pursue the building alternatively as well and its insurer. You may want to have a lawyer write the building management and put them on notice of claim and to notify their insurer and alert your lawyer of the applicable insurer. If a lawsuit were filed, the building would involve its insurer, and typically will eventually settle. You can pursue on both fronts.
If I can clarify or explain anything, just ask me. Kindly rate me 5 stars. enjoy the weekend.
You can pursue both, or just the private claim. I see no downside to pursuing both since may lead to additional compensation and two avenues always better than one.
If the time is not paid, then yes.
They cannot have it both ways, since the period is your personal time, and the injury didnt happen in the office itself, but in building instead.
I hope that is fast and clear.
