Know your worker's compensation rights


While workers’ compensation is often the exclusive remedy for injured workers, there are exceptions. For example, injured workers may pursue a product liability claim if their injury was caused by a dangerous or defective product. When a worker has sustained injuries that were caused by a
third party (someone other than an employer or co-worker), he or she may have a basis to pursue compensation through a third-liability claim, which is a type of personal injury claim.


Injured workers in Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania are entitled to workers compensation to cover the absent earnings and hospital bills that resulted from the work related injuries. Workers who accept workers compensation monies give up their right to sue the workplace for negligence. 


In a workers compensation agreement, a “third-party liability” claim is not made against an employer or co-worker, but against a separate individual or entity who may be responsible for part or the entire worker’s injury.


Third-party claims can often come about when a worker is injured by a product that was defective or by an individual other than the worker’s supervision or other workers at the company, such as a customer, a worker from another company, or anyone else in the public.
