I was hurt on the job by a third-party. What does that mean for my workers’ compensation claim?

You are still entitled to receive benefits. However, you may also be able to bring a separate lawsuit against that third-party or product that caused your injuries. If your suit is successful against the third party, your employer or your employer’s insurer may be able to obtain payment out of any damages you receive.

Third party claims are complicated and it is in your best interest to speak with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to find out what your legal rights are.
