Third-Party Claims For Work Injuries
A third-party claim in a work injury accident is basically a workers’ compensation claim with an underlying personal injury claim. You may be entitled to pursue compensation for your injury from both your employer’s insurance and from a negligent third party that caused the accident in which you were injured.
For example, if a negligent driver caused your delivery truck to crash, resulting in serious personal injury, you may be able to file a third-party liability lawsuit against the negligent driver.
The potential settlement or verdict from a third-party liability lawsuit could be greater than the benefits you are entitled to from a workers’ compensation claim.
