Many times when people get hurt they get hurt on the job. That is not an unusual situation. Sometimes those injuries are solely do to job related events. Such as, you are working in warehouse and you slip in the warehouse or a machine injures you. Those injuries may be strictly confined to the workers compensation forum. But there are other times where a person is injured on the job when they are not just limited to the workers compensation form. For example, if a person is driving on the job on the freeway and is rear ended by another driver. Not only does the injured person have a claim in workers compensation but he or she may also have a claim against the other person which is called a third party claim.
