When an employee gets hurt on the job, he/she has three options: file for personal injury, file for workers compensation or file for both. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to determine the difference between the two types of cases, let alone which one is right for the situation at hand. Learn from defense and plaintiff’s counsel as they explore the differences between these claims, as well as situations where compensation may be sought from a third-party for negligence that may have contributed to a work injury. This discussion will focus on potential liens (Section 319), the importance of cooperating with the workers’ compensation defense attorney/third party plaintiff’s attorney in order to obtain a good result for the client and identifying potential third party claims.
