Types of Workers’ Compensation Claims
There are two types of workers’ compensation claims that can be filed in Utah depending on how your accident happened:
- Administrative claim: If your injury occurred due to negligence or carelessness of your coworkers or employer, you may have an administrative claim. This claim would allow you to collect compensation for medical bills and lost wages. You can also receive benefits for permanent impairments as well.
- Third-party claim: A third-party claim is filed if your work-related injury was caused by someone who is not your coworker or employer. The civil court system handles these claims. These claims allow you to collect benefits for the same expenses as an administrative claim. However, you can also get compensation for pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. Future economic loss can also be considered.
Our Salt Lake City workers’ compensation lawyers can help you determine how to get benefits based on the details of your accident.
