Common Types Of Third-Party Claims
Third-party actions can apply in a number of situations, but they most often arise in the following work-related accidents:
Personal Injury Damages
If a negligent third party was responsible for a work accident, injury or illness, the injured worker may also be able to recover personal injury damages in addition to workers’ compensation benefits. In order to obtain compensation in a personal injury settlement or judgment, the injured worker must prove that the defendant was negligent and that the negligence caused the plaintiff’s injuries. Once negligence is established, the injured worker must also provide evidence regarding damages. Depending on the type of accident, the extent of the victim’s injuries, and laws of the jurisdiction involved, the injured worker may be able to recover compensatory damages for the following:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Household services
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
