Third Party Liability Claims
When accidents happen in the workplace, the employer and the injured employee are not the only ones who could be responsible for the accident. If a party aside from you and your employer is responsible for an accident, that party is referred to as a third party and you would pursue compensation from that party through a third-party claim.
Most workplaces have these third parties in them. A common example would be a subcontractor on a construction site. But, it could also be the situation such as someone causing a car accident with someone who is driving for work such as a delivery driver.
Even when workers’ compensation is available to help with compensation, medical bills and lost wages, third-party claims, if they are present, are a valuable additional source of compensation. If workers’ compensation is not available from your employer, a third-party claim may be your only source of compensation. This makes it imperative that you secure the representation of a personal injury attorney who understands how to construct the strongest third-party cases.
