Workers’ Compensation Versus Third-Party Personal Injury Claims
Injured workers’ are entitled to workers’ compensation whenever they suffer an injury at work, regardless of who was at fault. The injury may be something like shoulder or lower back problems that develop over time, or a spine injury that comes after an on-the-job accident.
If the injury was the result of negligence on the part of a third party, that is a party other than the victim’s employer, the victim may also be able to pursue compensation through a personal injury claim. This is common in construction accidents, as well as on-the-job motor vehicle accidents where a delivery driver was hit by a negligent driver in another vehicle.
