On the Job Injuries by a Third Party
When I am injured on the job by someone other than a co-employee or by my employer do I have a valid L&I claim?
The answer is probably yes.
When you are injured on the job by someone who does not work for your employer you have a valid LI claim and you can probably sue the person for your injuries.
When you are on the job and you work for company A and an employee for company B drops a hammer on your head, you can probably have a valid L&I claim and you can probably sue the employee of company B for your injuries.
This is known as a third party claim.
