Workers Compensation and Third Party Claims

Posted in Blog, Workers Compensation by on November 18th, 2013

third party Every year, hundreds of Massachusetts workers are injured while on the job. Most workers are aware of filing for Workers Compensation- which compensates the individual for wages lost due to their injury and for medical costs. Some times, this compensation may not actually cover the losses suffered by the individual, and workers compensation claims do not cover pain and suffering. When the injuries resulted due to some negligence on another party besides the employer, a Third Party Claim may be made.

When would a third party claim be appropriate? Speaking with an experienced attorney is helpful in workers compensation cases as they can help examine your case and see if there has been any negligence on the behalf of an outside party, to make sure that you receive the compensation that you deserve.

Even if your case does not qualify for any third party claims, having an attorney to assist you through the process can bring many benefits to you and your family. The claim process may not always be as straight-forward as you hoped, and an experienced lawyer can prepare you for what to expect and what the best plan of action may be.
