You May Get More Than Just Workers' Compensation
If you have been injured on the job, workers' compensation will cover some of your lost earnings and medical costs, but not all of your financial losses. In many work injury cases, you are entitled to seek money damages from the property owner or the manufacturer of the defective industrial product that caused your injuries. You may have what is known as a "third party" case in addition to your workers' compensation case.
