If you have a workplace injury that is caused by a third party, you may be able to receive recoveries both from workers’ compensation and from a personal injury claim against the third party. Examples of workplace accidents for which you can sue a third party include:

  • On-the-job car or truck accidents for which another driver is responsible.
  • Construction accidents including those:
    • caused by equipment provided or manufactured by a third party
    • caused by an employee of another subcontractor
    • caused by the general contractor’s failure to maintain a safe work site
  • Manufacturing accidents caused by equipment provided or manufactured by a third party.
  • Any accident caused by a defective product.

Dram shop injuries are injuries that result when someone has been over-served alcohol in a bar or restaurant. All bars that serve alcohol in Illinois are required to carry dram shop insurance to pay damages to people who either are physically injured or have property damaged by a person who was served alcohol in their establishment if they were intoxicated or underage. Dram shop insurance typically covers third persons that become injured in a car accident, a fight, or other situation, if the injuries were caused by a drunk person who was served alcohol when already intoxicated.
