Third Party Workers’ Compensation Claims
Workers’ Comp Advocates Serving Georgia And Nationwide In Personal Injury Lawsuits
For employees injured on the job in Georgia, workers’ compensation is not always the only option for recovery. Workers may be able to file third party workers’ compensation claims against those responsible if their workplace injuries were fully or partially the fault of individuals or businesses other than their employers or coworkers.
It costs you nothing to have your workers’ comp case reviewed for legal advice and options after an injury. Sometimes, our work injury lawyers recommend that a person file the workers’ comp claim without an attorney-we will offer you guidance and an objective opinion. There is no obligation to hire our firm after you meet with us.
At the McArthur Law Firm, we fight to recover the maximum compensation for clients, because they are worth it and we can. Read about some of the accident verdicts and settlements our firm has recovered for clients. The work accident lawyers at the McArthur Law Firm have been successfully guiding injured workers and their families through the Georgia workers’ comp and third party workers’ compensation claims process for years. This includes our work filing claims against third parties responsible for workplace accidents on behalf of those employed or living in Albany, Augusta and Columbus as we as for employees in Atlanta, Savannah and throughout the state.
How Can a Workers’ Comp Third Party Lawsuit Help Me?
Georgia workers’ compensation benefits include payments for doctor bills, medications, physical therapy and travel expenses. Workers are also entitled to only two-thirds of their regular salary, and there is a cap on the total amount payable.
However, a personal injury lawsuit allows a person to recover all lost income (without limitation) plus additional payments for non-economic damages such as pain, suffering and more. This is why a person must have the work accident reviewed by a lawyer to ensure the client is able to receive all the benefits and damage awards available under law.
Workers’ compensation third party claims include but are not limited to:
- Motor vehicle injury – A worker’s injury was caused by a person also driving on the job, for example a delivery man or truck driver
- Construction injury – A worker’s injury was caused by a contractor or subcontractor onsite
- Defective product injury – A worker was injured by faulty equipment or a defective product
Always ask lawyers if they have experience with the type of case you have. Attorney fees in Georgia will basically be the same-go with the best. With the workers’ compensation third party claims attorneys at the McArthur Law Firm, on-the-job injury victims and their families can rest assured that their future is in the hands of an experienced legal team with a long history of success. We are not afraid to forego a settlement and take a case to trial if it is in a client’s best interests.
