Third Party Involvement
When there is a claim in addition to the Workers’ Compensation claim, it is referred to as a “third party” claim. A third party is someone who is at fault for your injury but not directly related to your employer. An example of third party involvement is if you are injured by defective equipment at work, the manufacturer of that equipment may be held liable for any injury you sustained while using that equipment. An injury due to defective equipment may also be a valid product liability case, too. Another example is when a Worker is injured in a car or truck accident while on the job. Also, in third party cases, a third party may be the car insurance carrier of the responsible party.
Third party personal injury cases can be brought in addition to a Workers’ Compensation case. Unlike a Workers’ Compensation case, however, third party actions can include recovery for pain and suffering and punitive damages. We use our expertise in fighting your case to your benefit, and we help you obtain the judgment you require to compensate you on a level that is equal to your pain and suffering. Many times our attorneys are hired for a personal injury case with the client not even realizing that they also have a corresponding Workers’ Compensation claim.
