Third Party Claims
If you think you have been injured while on the job or by your work and feel that someone other than your employer is responsible, you may have a third party claim, or more specifically, a personal injury claim against the third party.
If you have a good claim against a third party, you may be able to obtain a recovery in addition to Oregon Workers' Compensation benefits. You may pursue your third party claim at the same time you pursue your workers' compensation claim.
I will discuss your situation and go over all options available and will help you assess the strategy most likely to meet your goals.
Know that strict time limits apply to bringing a third party claim - in Oregon, these time limits can be as short as 180 days. Good cases have been lost for having missed a time limit.
