Did you know that if you have suffered an injury in the workplace, there may be other sources of compensation available to you besides workers’ compensation benefits? Workers may be eligible to file a claim against their employer if an unsafe working condition caused the accident, or even a third-party claim if an unsafe product caused their injuries.
If you have suffered an injury in the workplace, contact a Los Angeles work injury lawyer at Effres & Associates so we can discuss the options and compensation available to you, apart from workers’ compensation benefits. We offer our services for residents throughout Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Ventura, and all surrounding counties.Compensation After Workplace Injury
You are eligible for workers’ compensation regardless of whose fault the accident was. However, most individuals don’t know that workers’ compensation benefits may not be the only source of benefits available when an accident occurs at work. In some cases in which the accident was caused by the negligence of another party, the third party can also be held liable.
Examples of third-party claims:
Third-party claims are not possible in every situation. These claims must be identified on a case-by-case basis.
