In Wisconsin, not all workplace injuries are covered under the state’s workers’ compensation plans. If you suffered injuries at work due to the negligent acts of someone not employed by your employer, it is possible to recover damages from a negligent third party. At Bollenbeck Fyfe, S.C., our personal injury attorney, Stuart Spaude, has considerable experience handling personal injury and workers’ compensation claims across the Fox Valley and the State of Wisconsin. This experience has given him knowledge of all of the intricacies of the process. Our firm is dedicated to finding ways to collect compensation from any negligent source, including third parties.
Most job-related injuries occur during the normal course of employment. These accidents are covered under Wisconsin’s workers’ compensation insurance, which helps victims recover money for their ongoing medical bills, loss of wages and permanent disability. However, if your injury was caused by the negligence of an outside party including customers, clients or faulty equipment, you may have a third party claim. These claims are complex and require extensive knowledge of both workers compensation and personal injury systems. That is why it is so important to seek the help of an experienced attorney to help you through this situation.
Our Appleton workers’ compensation attorney understands how important it is to look at the totality of your injury claim, to determine whether or not your third party claim is in addition to coverage under traditional workers’ compensation insurance. We work to pursue traditional workers’ compensation protection and civil action against the negligent party responsible for your injuries. We are knowledgeable and prepared to effectively handle both aspects of your case as we work to secure the positive results you deserve.
