Workplace Accident Attorneys
When an injury occurs on the job, workers have a right to worker’s compensation. Workers’ compensation is typically provided by an employer to help an injured worker with his medical bills and lost wages.
Workers’ compensation is often inadequate and does not provide the injured worker with enough benefits to fully compensate for the loss. However, in many situations, the injured worker’s injury may have been caused by a third-party. In these situations, the injured worker can pursue both a workers’ compensation claim and a lawsuit against the careless third-party (so long as the third-party is not the employer). Third-party claims allow the injured work to pursue his or her claims without the arbitrary caps set by the workers’ compensation system.
