Workers’ compensation covers your lost wages and medical bills in the event of a workplace accident, but what about the rest of your damages? Going through an injury is traumatic –physically, mentally,

Sometimes it’s all in the name. A third party personal injury claim is a personal injury lawsuit brought against a negligent third party. For example, a worker injured in a car accident while working could bring a suit against a negligent driver in addition to pursuing workers’ compensation benefits through their employer.
Additional examples of potentially liable third parties include the manufacturers of dangerous or defective equipment, subcontractors, and negligent workers who do not work for the same company as you.
