Fighting For All Of The Compensation You Deserve After A Work Accident
A work accident can leave you seriously injured and your family dealing with various financial complications. It could be critical to secure appropriate financial support for you and your loved ones, and our team can help you seek all of the compensation available to you. In addition to workers’ compensation benefits, we can help you explore the possibility of a third-party claim.
Should You File A Third-Party Claim?
After suffering from a work-related injury, you may assume that a workers’ compensation claim is sufficient to meet your needs. In certain circumstances, however, it is appropriate to seek additional compensation through a third-party claim against a liable party. If your injuries are the result of a work-related car accident, dangerous tools or circumstances in which a third party may be to blame, you could have a valid case.
By filing a workers’ compensation claim, you relinquish your right to sue your employer. However, we can thoroughly evaluate your case and determine if you have grounds to move forward with a claim against another party. For example, this could include an intoxicated driver that caused your work-related car accident, the company that manufactured a malfunctioning tool that caused you harm and others.
