We can prove negligence by demonstrating:
In cases where only workers’ compensation claim is filed, negligence does not need to be proven. However, when you want to pursue a third-party claim against a negligent party outside of your employer, you must be able to demonstrate their negligence. This is why it is crucial to have a seasoned legal professional behind your case — especially when rightful compensation and your well-being are on the line.
