When Are Third Parties Liable for Work Injuries?

If you’ve been injured in a workplace accident, you are probably entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, but that may not be enough to fully compensate you for your injuries.

If your injuries were caused by someone other than your direct employer or fellow employees of that employer, you may be entitled to additional compensation in a personal injury claim. Our firm helps injured workers pursue claims against negligent third parties such as:

  • Construction contractors and subcontractors
  • Manufacturers of workplace machinery
  • Owners of commercial buildings
  • Maintenance companies

These third-party claims can become complex, involving elements of products liabilitypremises liability, negligent hiring and supervision, and other claims. Our attorneys will carefully sort through the facts of your case to identify all possible sources of compensation.

We do not handle workers’ compensation claims. However, we understand how personal injury claims interact with workers’ compensation claims and what must be done to maximize the compensation our clients receive. Contact us today to discuss your workplace accident case.
