Third Party Claims Associated with Workers' Compensation Claims
There are situations when an individual who has sustained an injury during the course and scope of their employment has a claim in addition to their workers’ compensation claim. These third-party claims can arise when a third-party, that is not your employer, is negligent and responsible for causing your injuries. One of the common examples is a motor vehicle accident that occurs while you are performing your job duties. Other third-party claims can arise from faulty machinery or if an employer intentionally causes injuries.
