On the job injuries where there is a third party defendant exempt from the protection of the workers compensation statue are often the types of cases where our lawyers can obtain the largest verdicts and settlements for our clients. This is because they often involve big companies and there are no limitations on the amount of insurance coverage at issue because the company either has adequate insurance or has the ability to pay any verdict in excess of the insurance policy.
