Looking Beyond Workers’ Compensation: Third Party Liability
Workers’ compensation provides benefits to workers who sustain on-the-job injuries or experience occupational illnesses on a no-fault basis. This means, as long as the illness or injury is work-related, the worker can pursue benefits without having to prove that someone else was to blame. This is a wonderful system, but it is important to note that workers’ compensation only provides for medical treatment and a portion of lost wages. It does not cover full loss of earnings and earning potential, and it does not provide for emotional trauma or other non-economic losses.
