If you are injured on the job by a third party (someone who is not a fellow employee), you have the right to seek both workers’ compensation and personal injury compensation. This is known as a third-party claim. Essentially, it is two claims: one to collect benefits from your employer’s insurance company and the other to obtain benefits from the negligent party’s insurance company.
Navigating the pitfalls and challenges of both claims at the same time is a job for an experienced lawyer.
At the North Carolina law firm of R Steve Bowden & Associates PC, attorney R. Steve Bowden & Associates PC has the skill necessary to pursue the full amount of compensation you deserve.
Injured By A Subcontractor, A Drunk Driver Or Another Third Party?
Here are a few examples of possible third-party workers’ compensation cases:
- You are driving a truck as part of your job when you are hit by a drunk driver.
- You are working on a construction site when a subcontractor from a different company injures you with a forklift.
- You are working at an industrial facility when you are injured by a tool that was manufactured with defects.
