Do I Have a Third Party Work Injury Claim?
Following a work injury or illness, it is essential that you follow the appropriate steps to file a workers' compensation claim in order to receive financial coverage from your employer's insurance provider. Don't forget – you may be entitled to further compensation through a third-party claim. If an outside party was at fault for your work-related injury or illness, you may file a personal injury claim against the negligent individual or agency. For example:
- If you were injured by a defective piece of equipment, you may have a legitimate claim against the negligent manufacturer of the faulty product.
- If you were injured due to poorly constructed scaffolding, you may be entitled to compensation from the third-party contractor.
- In the event of an auto accident, the other driver may be sued for damages.
These are only a few scenarios in which you may be able to get additional money for your recovery. Get in touch with a knowledgeable lawyer to explore your options and begin building a case right away.
How Is Workers' Comp Different from a Third Party Claim in NJ?
New Jersey workers' compensation is a no-fault system in which you can get coverage for medical expenses, time off from work, and/or disability regardless of how the injury or illness occurred, as long as it happened in relation to your work duties. A third-party claim, on the other hand, will depend on whether you can prove that another person or agency bears full or partial responsibility for the damages.
