Workers' compensation covers injured workers for all injuries and illnesses sustained on the job. However, due to its broad nature, workers' compensation does have limits. Those limits are most notable when it comes to the amount of money that can be recovered in a settlement. However, there is no limit to the size of recovery in a third party liability claim. If a third party caused your work related injury, you may be able to file a personal injury suit in addition to your workers' compensation claim.
