Every job comes with risks, with some risks being more evident than others. We all know that construction jobs can be potentially dangerous, but did you know that even a so-called cushy office job or restaurant position could put your health in danger?
Even if you weren’t at your primary jobsite when the injury occurred, you are entitled to financial compensation if you’re injured or made sick at work. Whether you were working at a satellite office, or you were in your car on the way to another job location, you are completely protected by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. As long as you were on the clock, you are protected.
Occasionally accidents and injuries occur due to no fault to yourself. Even if your employer tries to claim, however, that you are at fault – you still have rights! It does not matter who is to blame for your illness or injury! In the event that an accident or injury occurs, and there was a third party involved, then you may be able to establish a case for a third-party injury claim.
This is something that goes beyond your workers’ compensation claim and may provide you with additional financial restitution for your injury or illness. The third party will be thoroughly investigated and if they’re found guilty of any of the following instances, then you should have a case against them.
- Back injuries due to strain or repetitive stress
- Automobile accidents that occur on the job
- Injuries that occur on a construction site by a third-party contractor (not your employer)
- Slipping and falling on a wet floor
- Burns, lacerations, or even amputation due to faulty machinery
Recovery from these injuries can deprive you from your livelihood, income, and happiness. Mounting medical bills can pile up, and rehabilitation and recovery can be costly. If you’ve sustained an illness or injury at work, you could be compensated not only for lost wages, but also lost potential. A third-party claim can also help you with your pain and suffering.
