Must Know Info: Third Party Claims

In a new article, attorney Michael Rose discusses how, in some workplace injury cases, it is possible for the injured person to hold a third party accountable for their injuries.
Filing for workers’ compensation benefits excludes you from suing your employer most of the time. However, if it can be shown that a third party, an entity that is separate from your employer, was negligent, that party can be held liable for your injuries as well. This can make a dramatic difference in the amount of compensation available to an injured worker.
