“Workers’ compensation will pay for the medical expenses for that person,
relating to that injury, and they will also pay a portion of their wages
that they lose for the time that they are out of work.
Then there is a third party action against another entity that may be
responsible for what happened, and that entity can be sued. And from that
entity, the person can recover for a number of other things that workers
compensation does not cover, such as, for example, pain and suffering, any
future medical expenses that they may have in the future, any future lost
earnings that they may have in the future, and whatever other area of
damage or loss that that person has suffered as a result of the incident.”
