How Can a Third-Party Claim Help My Case?
Workplace injuries are devastating. While workers’ compensation prevents employees from seeking damages against an employer, injured workers can pursue justice against a third party. A third-party refers to a person or company that is not your employer who may be found negligent for your injuries.
Some of the most common third-party claims involve:
- Automotive accidents:
In a situation involving road work, if a construction worker is hit by a distracted driver, you may have a claim against the negligent motorist.
- Product Liability:
Equipment, vehicles, heavy machinery, and other products have contributed to many workplace accidents. If you have been injured due to defective, malfunctioning machinery, you may have a claim against the manufacturer.
- Toxic or chemical exposure:
Manufacturers of toxic substances have a duty to provide a safe product and safe storing and handling instructions. If your injuries are caused by poisonous fumes despite following the safety guidelines, you may have a claim.
- Intentional torts:
If a person deliberately causes you harm, you may have an intentional tort claim.
- Premises liability:
If you are working on a property that your employer does not own, the property owner may owe you a duty of care. If you are injured due to hazardous conditions on the property, including faulty scaffolding or other dangers the property owner did not bring to your attention, you may have a claim.
