Workers’ Compensation Vs. Third-Party Claims
Under typical circumstances, when someone is injured on the job, the solution is to file a workers’ compensation claim with the help of an experienced Sevier County workers’ compensation lawyer. However, there are some instances where workers’ compensation benefits do not include the entire cost of the injured worker’s lost wages and medical bills. If this is the position you are in, our firm can file a third-party claim on your behalf.
A third-party claim is when our firm will try to hold a liable third party who is not your employer responsible for your injuries. For example, we can file a claim against an independent contractor, property owner, architect, or another person who caused your injury on the basis that if they were not negligent, then you would not have been injured. These claims are involved and should be managed by an experienced attorney.
