Many work-related injury victims are reluctant to file a workers’ compensation claim. They don’t want to bring what feels like a lawsuit that could ruin their reputations with their employers. Further, most work-related injury victims who do bring workers’ comp claims find this compensation to be inadequate to cover the full costs of ongoing medical care and other expenses.
In many of these cases, a third-party liability claim can help injured workers recover better compensation without the problems associated with a workers’ comp claim. When another party other than the employer or a co-worker is responsible for the accident, we can bring a third-party liability claim to help you obtain the compensation you need.
