Saginaw Third-Party Claims Lawyer
Serving Clients Throughout The State of Michigan
Under regulations set forth by the Michigan Workers’ Disability Compensation Act of 1969, workers injured on the job in Michigan can seek benefits for medical treatment and lost wages through their employer’s workers’ comp insurance carrier. Except under the most unusual cases of willful employer negligence, injured workers forfeit the right to sue their employer for additional compensation and punitive damages for negligence. However, injured workers retain the right to sue a third party found to be responsible for causing the accident or injury. These lawsuits are commonly known as third-party lawsuits and can significantly increase the amount of money damages an injured worker is entitled to receive.
A third-party lawsuit may be filed against a negligent property owner, the manufacturer of a defective product or a negligent co-worker or contractor on the job site. Filing a third-party lawsuit will not affect your workers’ compensation benefits.
I am attorney Timothy S. Burns. of Burns Law, in Saginaw. If you were injured on the job in the Tri-Cities area of Michigan, call my office to discuss the circumstances of your case. I can help you successfully file for workers’ compensation and explain your options for pursuing additional damages through a third-party lawsuit if the events of your accident point to negligence.
From offices in Saginaw, I provide workers’ compensation, Social Security Disability and personal injury claims services for clients throughout Saginaw County, Isabella County and Bay County, Michigan.
