Workers’ Compensation Vs. Third-Party Claims
Oftentimes, when someone is injured on the job, the simple solution is to file a workers’ compensation claim with the assistance of an experienced Knox County workers’ compensation lawyer. However, there are times where workers’ compensation benefits do not cover the entire cost of the injured worker’s lost wages and medical bills. In this case, our firm can file a third-party claim on your behalf.
Essentially, a third-party claim is when we seek to hold a liable third party who is not your employer accountable for your injuries. For example, we may sue an independent contractor, property owner, architect, or another person who caused your injury on the basis that had they not been negligent in their duties, you would not have been hurt. These claims are complicated and require the services of an experienced attorney to effectively handle.
