If you were injured on the job, you likely qualify for workers' compensation. The first step to claiming workers' comp benefits is to notice your employer's human resources department. If your injuries are serious — for example, if you have or think you may have a traumatic brain injury (TBI) — we strongly urge you to consult with an attorney, as well. With a lawyer on your side, you will have options to recover even more adequate compensation if a third party is liable.
A third-party liability claim or lawsuit may be appropriate after a workplace injury if any of the following entities were negligent and that negligence caused the accident:
- An equipment manufacturer
- A delivery or cleaning service
- A subcontractor who is not your employer
- A property owner if there is a premises liability element to your case
