Third-Party Liability Claims and Workers Compensation
Workers’ compensation coverage provides injured workers with the financial resources they need to pay for their medical treatment and support their families while they can’t work. But when parties other than your employer contribute to your injuries, you may be able to file a third-party liability claim for damages not covered by workers’ compensation benefits, such as pain and suffering.
Examples of third-party liability claims that can be filed in addition to workers’ compensation claims include:
- Auto Accidents
Workers hurt in auto accidents while working may be entitled to compensation beyond what is covered by workers’ compensation benefits.
- Defective Product Claims
When defects in heavy equipment, vehicles, and products used in the workplace cause injuries, workers can seek damages from the manufacturers.
- Premises Liability Claims
Employees can file third-party liability claims against maintenance companies, property owners, or construction contractors when their negligence causes injuries.
