Third-Party Claim Attorney in West Palm Beach - Our Lawyers Will Fight for Your Rights
A workplace can be busy with several contractors and subcontractors coming and going. In some cases, an employee in such an environment gets injured. The injured worker then files a workers' compensation claim, which will cover a portion of lost wages and medical expenses. The employee may not realize, however, that he or she may be able to file a third-party work injury claim. The third party (someone who is not the employer) may be liable for the injury.
In third party accident claims, you may have a right to personal injury benefits beyond the limits of workers' compensation. You may be able to recover financial compensation for losses related to pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress (non-economic losses) in addition to economic losses such as medical expenses and lost income.
