Even when you have the proper training, there are many occupations that come with inherent risks. After all, accidents happen in virtually any employment setting. If you sustain an injury on the job, you may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits. Depending upon the factors surrounding the injury or illness, you may also be able to file a third-party claim against a non-employer. Specifically, if someone/something outside of your employer or coworker was responsible for your injury, you may explore a third-party personal injury lawsuit.
