Workers Compensation Third-Party Claims
Grand Junction Workers Compensation Attorney
If you were injured on the job, you might think that workers' compensation is the only available remedy. Even when workers' comp is available to cover injured workers, it rarely compensates work-related injury victims sufficiently for all long-term costs.
In many of these cases, there could be a third-party personal injury claim when the negligent conduct of another caused the accident.
At Doehling Law, our attorneys understand insurance. We have the experience and diligence to uncover all potential sources of compensation. We will fight to make sure you receive maximum compensation that covers medical costs, lost wages while off the job, and pain and suffering.
From our offices in Grand Junction, Glenwood Springs and Aspen, we represent clients across the Western Slope of Colorado and eastern Utah. Call (970) 292-7171 for a free consultation.
When Can a Third-Party Claim Be Added?
It is always helpful to have an example. On a construction site, forklift accidents can cause serious injuries.
For an injured worker, there could be a claim against his or her employer for workers' compensation. A third-party personal injury claim might be filed against the forklift driver's employer if proper training had not been offered or some other negligent act had contributed to the accident.
Many accidents that occur on oil field sites also involve both workers' compensation and third-party personal injury as well.
