What is a third-party lawsuit?
In most cases, an injured worker applying for workers' compensation pay forfeits the right to sue his or employer for additional damages. However, the injured worker retains the right to sue the property owner, product manufacturer or other party or parties found liable for causing the accident and injuries. These are referred to as third-party lawsuits and often result in significant monetary damages over and above workers' compensation pay.
