Third-Party Claims In Workers' Compensation Cases

If you were injured on the job, workers' compensation benefits may only be a portion of the potential compensation available. If negligence on the part of another individual or entity other than your employer contributed to the accident and your resulting injuries, our team of attorneys and professional staff can help you pursue a third-party claim for additional compensation that may help with your recovery.

Helping You Pursue All Available Compensation And Benefits

Perhaps you were injured in a car accident while driving a company vehicle, or while working a construction job, a third-party contractor caused an accident that landed you in the hospital. At Brizendine Law Office, LLC, we will work closely with you, determine if a third party contributed to your accident, and pursue a lawsuit in addition to your workers' compensation claim.

Third-party claims often involve:

  • Faulty equipment or machinery
  • Car, truck or other auto accidents
  • Subcontractors or other nonemployees
  • Property hazards

Although your workers' comp claim may cover medical expenses and lost wages, these benefits are limited to a percentage of your salary or wages — you will not be compensated for pain and suffering or damages. However, such limits do not apply to third-party claims. By pursuing a third-party claim concurrently with your workers' comp claim, we can maximize your compensation and ensure you have the financial resources to recover as comfortably as possible.
