Molly Hendrickson: 

What is a third-party claim that may come out of a worker's comp case? We asked attorney Rebecca Halberg in this Ask the Lawyers quick question.

Rebecca Halberg: 

A third-party case in a worker's compensation claim is when someone else, outside of your employer, is at fault for causing your accident. The clearest example is... Let's say you are a delivery driver for one of the big box delivery services, and you are driving to deliver some packages and another driver t-bones you and the other driver is found to be at fault. You would have not only a worker's compensation claim, but you would also have a third-party case against the at-fault driver in the automobile accident.
