Workplace Accidents

  • Worker’s compensation benefits may not be the only source of recovery available to you.
  • We can help you navigate the facts and often confusing legal principles involved in your case.
  • Examples of workplace injuries that can result in third party claims.

Hundreds of thousands of people are injured on the job every year. While many people injured in workplace accidents will only be allowed to receive workers’ compensation benefits from their employer, we are experts in investigating workplace injuries to determine whether other sources of recovery are available to you. If a “third party” (someone other than your employer or a coworker) was fully or partly responsible for your work injury, claims can be made against them. Third party claims allow an injured worker to recover more than the limited benefits available through workers’ compensation. You can make a third party claim even though you are receiving workers’ compensation benefits.

The facts and law governing third party claims can be confusing. What may at first look like a work injury for which workers compensation is the only source of compensation can be a case where a large third party recovery is possible. The following are examples of workplace injuries that can result in third party claims.

  • Electrocution
  • Chemical Exposure
  • Compressed Gasses Hazards
  • Cave Ins
  • Falls
  • Crane Accidents
  • Dangerous and Defective Machines
  • Explosions
  • Logging Accidents
  • Mechanical Hazards
  • Scaffolding Accidents
  • Nail Gun Accidents
  • Welding, Cutting and Brazing Accidents

If you have been injured or someone close to you has been injured or killed on the job, you owe it to yourself and your family to have your case investigated for a possible third party claim. We are experienced in handling serious injury and wrongful death cases. There is no cost to you to have us investigate your case.
