What Happens If You're Injured at Work Due to a Third Party?
Workers comp lawyer in Raleigh Brent Adams explains what happens when you are injured at work in North Carolina due to the negligence of a third party that is not connected to your employer. A good example of third party negligence is when a delivery driver is dropping off a package and is injured on someone else's property. Watch the video above to learn more.
If you are injured at work due to the negligence of a third party you have two claims you can make: One against your employer, and another against the third party who caused your injuries. If you are paid workers' compensation through your employer and win a third party claim, you must pay back comp benefits with the third party settlement. The only way out of this refunded payment is if the judge reduces or eliminates the lien.
