Many people who are injured on the job can obtain benefits under the Worker’s Compensation Laws. These benefits are obtained directly through the worker's employer. However, the worker who is seriously injured on the job may file a separate lawsuit against a third party who caused the injury. This may be, for example, an injury caused by a ramp improperly placed by a delivery company, an injury sustained due to a defective machine, or an injury sustained due to defects in a building caused by negligence.
