What You Should Know About Third Party Claims in Worker’s Comp Cases

If you’re ever injured as a worker on a construction site and your employer carries Worker’s Comp Insurance, your next inquiry should be whether or not a third party is to blame for your injury. If a third party is to blame for your injury, you could have a claim against them and they would not have a Worker’s Comp bar necessarily under your employer’s Worker’s Comp policy. You should always investigate thoroughly the facts surrounding any incident to see if you can pursue a third party claim for a negligent act of another entity that was on the construction site.
