When you can file an injury lawsuit alongside a workers' compensation claim

If you were hurt at work, you may think filing a workers' compensation claim is your only option. In most situations, a work comp claim is the only recourse - paying lost time benefits, medical bills and potentially permanent disability or vocational benefits. That means no damages for pain and suffering or the impact on your family.

Injury At Work: Is Anyone Else To Blame?

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.
