When A Third Party – Not Your Employer – Caused Your Injury
Workers’ compensation insurance covers most construction workers and other workers injured. To get medical care paid for and some of your lost wages replaced, you do not have to demonstrate that your employer was negligent. You must prove that you were hurt while engaged in work activities.
Workers’ compensation is helpful when a claim moves forward on time. However, for many employees recovering from serious or catastrophic injuries, the benefits can be insufficient for actual needs and losses, which may include:
- Specialized medical care and therapy.
- Home remodeling, a modified van, and other disability accommodations.
- Durable medical equipment, including necessary replacements over a lifetime.
- Personal care as needed.
- Related expenses affecting the household.
- Pain and suffering.
This is why evaluating workplace injury cases for potential third-party claims is so important. Attorneys at Randolph and Associates always scrutinize the facts behind a construction site accident, a manufacturing accident, or an on-the-job injury. A third-party claim can open the door to lawsuits demanding comprehensive compensation.
How A Third-Party Liability Case Works?
A third-party liability claim alleges and shows that someone else caused injuries through negligence, such as:
- Another contractor at the work site
- A manufacturer
- An installer
- A repair or maintenance company
- An inspector
- A delivery company
Our personal injury lawyers have succeeded in bringing numerous third-party claims and lawsuits on behalf of clients who had been injured while at work. In some cases, they have recovered more than one million dollars for individual injured workers.
Our personal injury lawyers are skilled at discovering third parties – often companies with ample insurance – that have contributed to accidents and, therefore, are responsible. These claims bring much-needed relief to seriously injured construction workers, factory workers, and employees with other occupations.
