Workers’ Compensation Vs. Third-Party Lawsuits

When someone sustains an injury on the job, there are times where workers’ compensation benefits simply do not cover the entire cost of an injury. Or, in other cases, the injured party may work for a company that does not carry workers’ compensation insurance. Whatever the situation, if you cannot receive adequate compensation through a standard workers’ compensation claim, you should consider filing a third-party claim.

Essentially, when someone files a third-party claim, they are suing a liable third party (not their employer) for their injuries. For example, if someone was injured on a construction site, they will sue the property owner, an independent contractor, an equipment designer/manufacturer, or any other liable party that is not their employer. If a third-party claim is successful, the injured party should receive the full compensation to which he or she is entitled. Our firm has significant experience handling both workers’ compensation claims and third-party claims, and we are prepared to put that experience to work for you today.

Statute of Limitations for Third-Party Lawsuits in Tennessee

Every state has a statute of limitations in place for personal injury claims. The statute of limitations for third-party claims in Tennessee is, typically, one year. This means that in most cases, those who’ve been wrongfully injured will only have one year from the date of their accident to take legal action against the liable party. Our firm is prepared to begin the claims process on your behalf at once.
