When an employee gets injured in a workplace accident, they may be entitled to compensation through the Texas workers’ compensation program. However, under certain circumstances, employees can also seek compensation in a personal injury lawsuit if the injury was caused in part by a third party.
There are a variety of potential third parties working on any jobsite, but these workers are particularly common in the construction and manufacturing industries. Some examples of third parties can include:
Filing a third party claim does not affect your ability to receive Texas workers’ compensation payments. While workers’ compensation might cover the cost of medical bills, compensation from a third party claim can also compensate the injured worker for pain and suffering, lost earning capability, emotional stress, inconvenience, and loss of enjoyment of life, among others.
If a third party on a jobsite injured you or someone you love, you have a right to seek compensation.
