Helping You Navigate The Workers' Compensation System
The workers' compensation system is designed to assist those who have suffered an on-the-job injury. Injured workers receive medical benefits and compensation for lost wages. Successfully navigating the workers' compensation system often requires effective legal guidance.
Was Someone Else To Blame For Your On-The-Job Injury?
On most construction sites and many other types of workplaces, multiple businesses may be operating as contractors, subcontractors or in some other role. If another party was responsible for your workplace injury, they should be pursued for compensation also. That other person or business is referred to as a "responsible third party" in such a situation. Third-party liability claims should be pursued at the same time as workers' compensation benefits. Third-party claims can be pursued even if your employer does not have workers' compensation insurance coverage.
