Who Can Be Held Liable?
A third party may be held liable for your injuries in a work accident under a variety of circumstances. Our lawyers will investigate the accident to determine who can be held liable. If a third party — not your employer or a co-worker — contributed to your accident, we will help you file a claim to recover compensation.
Third-party claims can involve all types of individuals and companies. Third-party claims after a workplace accident include:
- A delivery driver injured in an accident caused by another motorist
- A construction accident caused by a different company or worker such as an electrician, a plumber or another contractor
- A postal worker bitten by a dog
