You Can Earn Workers’ Compensation Benefits And Personal Injury Compensation
When you are hurt on the job, it is comforting to know that workers’ compensation benefits are there to help you weather the storm of lost wages and medical bills while you are out of work. However, in some serious cases, these benefits may not go far enough.
At Robinson Salyers, PLLC, our lawyers help injured workers in Shelbyville, in Frankfort and across central Kentucky pursue all of the compensation they are entitled to for their injuries. In certain circumstances, that can include personal injury compensation, through what is known as a third-party claim.
Understanding Third-Party Claims
These types of claims are for when you are hurt on the job through a party not connected to your employer. Because you are hurt while working, you are eligible for workers’ comp, but because the negligent party is not your employer, you are also eligible for personal injury compensation.
Some common examples of accidents that could warrant a third-party claim include:
- By a defective power tool you were using on a construction site
- In a car accident while driving a delivery truck for your work
- In a slip-and-fall accident while performing off-site work
- Hit by a negligent driver while working on a road construction crew on Interstate 64
We Will Take A Big-Picture Approach To Your Case
As our client, you will work with both personal injury lawyer John Christopher Robinson and workers’ compensation attorney Benjamin Salyers. Together, they will take a big-picture view of your case with a goal of maximizing all of the compensation available to you.
By resolving this issue under one roof, you can be sure our attorneys will focus on getting the best result possible. When you work with attorneys at separate injury and workers’ compensation firms, those lawyers will only be looking for a positive result in their part of your claim.
