What if I am injured at work as a result of another company’s fault?
If you are injured at work as a result of another company’s fault, you have the right to sue the other company for your injuries. For example, if you fall into an unmarked hole on another company’s premises while you are delivering, they are legally responsible for your injuries. You would be entitled to all of your lost income, as well as compensation for pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. These are items of damage that are not part of your workers’ compensation recovery. Keep in mind that you will be obligated to reimburse the workers’ compensation company from your settlement proceeds.
