In a third-party case, an injured worker may bring a claim for damages for lost wages, medical expenses, pain, suffering, disability, loss of enjoyment of life, disfigurement, and other damages depending on the specific circumstances of the injury. Every case is different, but the amount of compensation that an injured worker can collect in a third-party case often exceeds what is available with workers’ compensation alone.
