What is a third party lawsuit?
The term “third party lawsuit” refers to circumstances when people are injured in the course of their employment and they’re automatically, by law, entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, which is a portion of their lost wages, as well as any medical expenses that are related to the accident that they were involved in. Very often though, there might be some third party that’s negligent or responsible by violation of law. In those circumstances, we’re able to bring what’s known as a third party lawsuit to hold that responsible party liable for people’s conscious pain and suffering, medical expenses, and full wages, benefits that are lost as a result of these accidents.
