How do I Pursue Damages from a Third Party?

You’re Entitled to more than Workers Comp Recovery.

You may have more payment rights under the law than you initially thought. If you’re a victim of a work injury, it’s possible to receive further monetary compensation in addition to your workers’ compensation claim.

In severe injury cases, third-party financial recoveries are often greater than the benefits an injured worker receives from workers’ compensation. In a third-party claim, an injured worker may be permitted to recover future and past medical expenses, loss of earnings, loss of future earnings, property damage, and compensation for pain and suffering.

These damages are not completely covered by workers’ comp claims. In workers’ compensation cases, a worker’s claim are generally limited to medical expenses, disability compensation, and an award in situations where the injured worker has permanent disabilities as a result of the injury.

When Hurt At Work – You Need 2 Things

1. The right objective medical treatment for your recovery.
2. An experienced attorney to maximize your compensation so you can move on with your life.

In the event of a recovery against a third party, the employer has the right to subrogation, or reimbursement for any workers’ compensation benefits that may have been paid to you. Most employees rely on Workers’ Compensation during recovery, as a third-party claim takes much longer to pursue. So many times, workers comp has already been paid out and the workers’ comp insurance carrier will accept less than the full amount that had been paid on your behalf.
