I was injured working in Everett, can I file a personal injury claim?
If a worker is injured in the work place, he may file a worker’s compensation claim. An injured worker not only has a right to file a worker’s compensation, e.g. a Labor and Industries claim, but may also have a viable “third party claim” to recover damages against the contractor, subcontractor or any other independent trade which was negligent. This would be a claim against any negligent company or an employee of another company on a job site which caused the worker’s injury. The injured worker may file a third party claim against the employer of the negligent worker and arguably claim that the employer or its employee failed to enforce or follow certain WISHA or OSHA regulations.
