Third Party Liability in Work Injuries
When applying for workers’ compensation benefits, the cause, severity, and who is at fault for a work injury is not something that is considered when pursuing a claim. Because California workers’ compensation claims are ‘no fault’, workers cannot file a lawsuit against their employers after an injury, even if their claim is denied. However, if your work injury is caused by the negligence of a third party (a person or product not associated with your employer), known as third party liability, you may be able to pursue compensation from the third party.

The most common types of third party liability in workers’ compensation include:
If you are in an auto accident while performing work-related duties and are not at fault for the crash, you can pursue a third party personal injury claim against the at-fault driver.
Personal injury claims are not limited to auto accidents. If your work-related duties take you to other businesses or customer homes and you slip and fall, are bitten by a dog, or suffer any other type of injury, you may be able to pursue a personal injury or premises liability claim.
If you are working on a project and suffer an injury due to a defective product, the manufacturer of the faulty product might be a liable third party for your injury.
