We fight for maximum compensation for every client. We also represent families who have lost loved ones in work-related accidents, filing claims for survivor’s benefits on their behalf.
Employees and employers are two parties that are involved in the workplace and could possibly be involved in workplace accidents. However, a third party may also be involved in the accident. When a third party is involved in a workplace accident, they may be held liable for the injuries that an employee suffered as a result of the accident. The employee has the opportunity to file a lawsuit against the third party if they wish to do so. They are able to collect workers’ compensation in the meantime. However, if they win the lawsuit against the third party, they may have to pay back the workers’ compensation that they previously received.
