Workers’ Compensation and Claims Against Third Parties

May 31, 2023 - Workers' Compensation/Work Injury by

Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that is available to workers that are injured while fulfilling their employment duties. It provides the injured worker with monetary compensation and medical care for their injuries or sickness. In exchange, the worker is not allowed to sue their employer for their injury or sickness. However, there is no prohibition on an injured or sick worker bringing a claim against a third party that causes their injury or illness.

Hear What Our Clients Have To Say

"I worked with these lawyers for almost 6 years as a paralegal and only left as my husband took a job in another state. I have worked for other personal injury law firms since and none of them come even close to the way this group of lawyers go above and beyond for their clients. They are true professionals, extremely detail oriented and efficient in the way they handle and work up each and every case."
