Workers’ Compensation vs. Third-Party Claims
In the state of California, most workers who sustain an injury at work are entitled to workers' compensation. Workers’ compensation is available to employees regardless of who was at fault, so an employee can receive benefits even if he or she caused the accident. In most cases, injured employees cannot pursue a lawsuit against their employer and are limited to seeking redress through workers’ compensation.
However, if a worker is injured by a third party's negligence such as a subcontractor or products manufacturer, he or she might be able to claim workers' compensation benefits while also seeking additional damages in a personal injury lawsuit. For example, if you were injured after falling from defective scaffolding, you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer or subcontractor who assembled it, in addition to filing a workers’ compensation with your employer.
Your case is unique, and determining who is liable can be a difficult task. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you may be entitled to more than just workers' compensation benefits. Speak with a Roseville personal injury lawyer at Herrig, Vogt & Hensley, LLP to find out how much your claim could be worth, as well as what legal options are available to you.
