Third-Party Liability

In most workers' compensation cases, there are two parties — the worker and his or her employer. Workers' compensation is what is called "no-fault," due to the fact that it does not matter how an employee was injured.

In contrast, personal injury claims center on the question of negligent conduct that causes injury. A "third-party" liability claim happens in the event that a worker suffers an on-the-job injury due to the negligence of someone who is not a part of the place of employment — a "third party."

One of the most common times this arises is when it comes to drivers — drivers who are visiting an event site are third parties, while drivers who are going to another job site are sharing the road with innumerable third parties.

The way that a third-party suit works with workers' compensation benefits can be immensely complex; failure to address these complex and nuanced issues can have a significant effect on recovery.
