Pursuing Personal Injury Compensation For On-The-Job Injuries
In most instances when someone is hurt or gets sick on the job, workers’ compensation benefits are there to help cover medical care and missed time from work. In some cases, however, workers are surprised to learn they could potentially recover additional compensation through a third-party claim.
At Carter Craig, Attorneys at Law, we can determine if you qualify for a third-party claim. Located in Danville, Virginia, we have been providing effective personal injury representation for more than 60 years. We have a track record for maximizing the value of claims and recovering the compensation that accident victims and their families truly deserve.
What Is A Third-Party Claim?
Because your injuries happened while on the job, you will be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. However, because someone not related to your employment — a third party — was technically responsible, you can also take action against them through a personal injury lawsuit.
Some common examples of third-party claims include:
- A delivery driver being injured in a car accident by a negligent driver
- A construction worker being injured by a poorly manufactured power tool on the job
- A worker being attacked by an animal while on a house call
- Slipping and falling while on someone else’s property because of that property owner’s negligence
As personal injury and workers’ compensation lawyers, we can handle both claims to maximize the compensation that you are eligible for. For the most serious injuries, this can make a difference in whether you truly receive the compensation you need for your long-term needs.
