AS 23.30.050. Employer's Liability Despite Negligence of a Third Party.

The liability of an employer for medical treatment is not affected by the fact that the employee was injured through the fault or negligence of a third party not in the same employ, until notice of election to sue has been given as required by AS 23.30.015 (a) or suit has been brought against the third party without giving notice. The employer has, however, a cause of action against the third party to recover any amounts paid by the employer for the medical treatment in like manner as provided in AS 23.30.015 (b).
