Third-Party Liability Overview
Injuries at work often lead to workers' compensation claims. Benefits will be paid out by the organization's workers' comp insurance carrier. There are some situations, however, where other individuals or companies can also be held responsible for your accident. It is wise to contact an experienced attorney at the Chicago law firm of Steinberg, Goodman & Kalish to discuss third-party liability.
