The law provides several protections for workers who are injured while working.

Examples of Third Party Injury Claims
Third party claims can take many forms, just like any other injury claims. Some scenarios are:
- A car accident caused by another driver while you are driving as part of your job
- A warehouse accident caused by the operator of another business’s truck at your company’s loading dock
- An injury resulting from defects in equipment you use on the job
- An injury caused by the negligence of another person (but not a co-worker) who is working at the same site as you
- An injury resulting from maintenance defects in a building not owned by your company
When you suffer an on-the-job injury, remember that Alabama law provides for two types of compensation: workers’ compensation and third-party personal injury claims. A personal injury lawyer like Allwin E. Horn, IV, P.C, can talk with you about your eligibility for both.
What Compensation Can I Get With a Third Party Claim?
With a third party work injury claim, you are eligible to receive compensation for any of your costs not covered by your workers’ compensation claim. These costs can include medical bills, lost income, costs of retraining if you can no longer do your old job after the injury, special transportation, physical therapy, and other expenses associated with the injury.
