Third-Party Claims in NC
Filing Negligence Claim Against Third-Party
When you are injured on the job, obtaining the financial compensation you need pay your bills is all that matters. Sometimes workers’ compensation is insufficient to cover all your losses. Thankfully, you may be able to file a negligence claim against a third-party if they were responsible for your injury to obtain compensation. The Concord workers’ compensation lawyer at The Law Offices of Darrin M. Gamradt, P.C. can help you at every step of your case and fight to recover what you deserve.
As a former insurance company representative, Attorney Gamradt knows just what it takes to win workers’ compensation cases and recover the financial damages you need to move forward with your life after a workplace injury. He can work to counter insurance companies when they attempt to deny or undervalue your claim.
How does a third-party claim work?
Workers’ compensation protects employers from being sued directly for an injury on the job. Third-party liability claims, however, can be filed against other actors and can result in more compensation than a workers’ compensation claim.
Third-party claims are commonly filed against:
- Drivers who cause transportation incidents resulting in injured employees
- Manufacturers or distributors of faulty equipment and machinery
- Negligent owners of properties on which an employee is injured
If your claim is successful you could receive even more compensation than a workers’ compensation claim could.
State law largely caps how much an employee can recover in a workers’ compensation claim, but this is not the case with third-party claims. Such claims have no limit on how much can be recovered which could be all of your lost income and even compensate you for pain and suffering, which workers’ compensation will not cover.
