Workers’ Compensation Vs. Third-Party Claims
Usually, when someone is injured on the job, the easy resolution is to file a workers’ compensation claim with the help of an experienced Blount County workers’ compensation lawyer. But, there are times where workers’ compensation benefits do not include the whole cost of the injured worker’s lost wages and medical bills. If this is the case for you, our attorneys can file a third-party claim for you.
A third-party claim is when we try to hold a responsible third party who is not your employer accountable for your injuries. For instance, we may file a claim against an independent contractor, property owner, architect, or another person who created your injury on the fact that their negligence was a proximate cause of your injuries. These claims are multifaceted and demand the help of a qualified attorney to efficiently manage them.
