Can You Receive Workers Compensation and Premises Liability Compensation for an Accident?

Hit and Run Accident AttorneysPremises liability for third parties may also apply in a workers compensation case. Depending on the circumstances of the case, a third party property owner may also be liable if their negligence resulted in injury.

For example, suppose a delivery worker drops off a package to a chemical plant. While making the delivery, an explosion occurs which shakes the building and causes a fire. The worker falls, hitting his head due to the impact of the explosion and he suffers from brain damage as a result of the concussion he sustains. In addition, the fire burns him and he must receive treatment for first degree burns.

How Does Workers Compensation Relate to this Case?

In the above example, the employee was engaged in work for his delivery company and was subsequently injured while on the job. This alone qualifies him to receive workers compensation benefits for lost wages and medical treatment.
