What is a workers’ compensation claim?
In the event that someone is injured on the job, they will most likely file a workers’ compensation claim to help them recover the compensation they need to heal. When filing a workers’ compensation claim, you are not suing your employer. But rather, you are seeking compensation from your employer’s insurance carrier. If you are victorious, you should obtain compensation to help protect the cost of your medical bills and a portion of your lost wages until you can go back to work again.
To learn more about workers’ compensation benefits, do not wait to reach out to our firm today. Our legal team is here to help.
What is a third-party claim?
It is unfortunate that there are times when workers’ compensation benefits do not shield the entire cost of the damages you have sustained in your injury on the job. When this occurs, our firm can work to hold a responsible third party who is not your employer accountable for the injury you have endured. For instance, if you were injured due to unsafe property conditions, a negligent independent contractor, or defective tools or machinery, a skilled attorney can file a personal injury claim on your behalf. As long as we can satisfy the burden of proof, our firm can ensure that you obtain the compensation you need to heal.
