Third-Party Workers’ Comp Claims In Hartford
Our Attorneys Work Hard To Resolve Your Case
When you are injured at work, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, those benefits are limited to covering your necessary medical costs and a set percentage of your lost wages. If you were injured by a negligent third party at work, you could be entitled to additional benefits, above what you can receive through workers’ compensation alone.
The attorneys at Polinsky Law Group, LLC, in Hartford, Connecticut, have decades of experience handling workers’ comp claims and personal injury actions. Our firm can provide you with the personal attention and skilled representation you need at every stage of your case.
Contact our Hartford attorneys to discuss your third-party workers’ comp claim. We offer a free initial consultation and you will not owe us attorney fees unless we secure compensation for you.
Were You Injured By A Third Party?
Under workers’ compensation law, an employee is barred from bringing a personal injury claim against his or her employer for a work injury. However, if your injuries were caused by a third party, you may have a claim against that person or business.
A third party cannot be a co-worker, boss or employer. For example, if you were injured in a work-related car accident caused by a stranger, you may have a separate third-party claim against that person.
As with any personal injury claim, a third-party claim will entitle you to damages above and beyond those available through workers’ compensation. This includes damages for your pain and suffering and, in some limited circumstances, punitive damages.
Attorneys With Personal Injury And Workers’ Comp Experience
Third-party claims and workers’ compensation overlap. If you have a third-party claim, it is important to work with an attorney who has experience with both areas of the law so that you can maximize your benefits.
