What is a Workers’ Compensation 3rd Party Claim?
A third party claim refers to a claim brought against one or more parties, outside of your employer, that was negligent and caused or contributed to your work injury. If you are injured at work you may only recover from your employer those benefits outlined by the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act. However, if a third party caused your injury you can pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault party (known as a third-party claim) in addition to the workers’ compensation claim.
An injury at work can give rise to a third-party claim in many instances, including when the injury occurs as a result of car accidents, truck accidents, premises liability, dog bites, wrongful death, and construction accidents.
When his clients are hurt on the job, Attorney Jason Marks looks for opportunities to file third party claims to ensure his clients receive the maximum compensation possible. His methodical approach helps him to discover details others miss.
Is it Personal Injury or Workers’ Compensation?
