Oftentimes, when workers are injured on the job, they will seek legal action through a workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to protect the cost of any work-related injuries or illnesses. However, there are instances when the cost of an injury surpasses the benefits provided in a workers’ compensation claim. In this instance, it is in your best interest to consider retaining the services of a lawyer who can file what is known as a third-party claim on your behalf. Basically, third-party claims seek to hold responsible third parties accountable for an injury. These parties can include product designers/manufacturers, property owners, independent contractors, and more. The purpose of filing third-party claims is to help the injured employee recover the full compensation he or she needs without having to pursue legal action against his or her employer directly.
