Filing a Third-Party Negligence Claim in Worcester
When you get hurt on the job, it isn’t always your fault. And sometimes, it isn’t even completely your employer’s fault. So who’s to blame? Sometimes a third party can be at fault for a workplace injury. When you file a Workers’ Compensation claim, your damages will only include medical bills and partial lost wages. To recover damages for your emotional suffering or grief, you need to bring a suit against a third party.
For Workers’ Compensation Questions and To See If You Can File Against A Third-Party, Call Eden Rafferty Today.
Here are some examples of when a third party contributed to an unsafe environment that may have caused your workplace injury:
