Filing A Third-Party Liability Claim To Supplement Your Compensation

Workers' compensation offers several benefits to injured workers. These benefits include medical benefits, temporary disability benefits, or " out-of-work benefits" and disability awards.

Workers' comp benefits do not, however, fully compensate an injured worker for all of his or her lost income stemming from an injury. In addition, workers' comp benefits do not account for pain and suffering or other damages. If someone other than your employer was responsible for your workplace injury, you have the right to bring what is known as a third-party claim in addition to your workers' compensation claim. It is crucial to have experienced legal counsel on your side. Attorneys Kenneth Kaplan and Bernard Kaplan of Kaplan & Kaplan Counsellors at Law have represented people across New Jersey in a broad range of third-party claims.

Qualifying Circumstances For Third-Party Claims

Several scenarios could give rise to a third-party claim, including:

  • A worker who is involved in a motor vehicle crash at work
  • A construction worker whose injuries were caused by another company
  • A delivery person who suffers a dog bite
  • A worker injured by a dangerous product or poorly designed tool
  • A slip-and-fall accident caused by a third-party maintenance company
  • Toxic exposure from a substance used at a workplace
