If you have been injured in a construction site accident, you may not only have to file a workers’ compensation claim, but you may also be able to take action against a third party. In some situations, injuries were caused by the negligence of other parties that may include the property owner, the manufacturer of tools or safety equipment, etc. In cases like these, it may be necessary to take action against a third party. This can get complicated because if you were to also file for workers’ compensation, you may be required to pay back what you were provided from the insurance carrier. This may result in a third-party lien, in which you may be ordered by a court to return the money that was used to support you after being seriously injured.
