Industrial Accident Claim Lawyers
Injuries that happen at work are legally more complicated than injuries that occur elsewhere. Most workplace injuries are covered by workers' compensation insurance. In exchange for these benefits, employees give up the right to sue their employers directly for negligence.
Often employees are unaware that they may be entitled to compensation in addition to workers' compensation benefits for commercial accidents. If your workplace injury was caused by someone other than your employer, you may pursue a workplace injury or industrial accident claim against that person or organization in addition to collecting workers' compensation benefits.
Third Party Claims
Commercial or industrial accident claims are called third party claims because someone other than the employer or employee is involved. For example, if you were driving a company-owned van as part of your work duties and another driver ran a red light and caused an accident, we could pursue an accident claim against the other driver. If you were injured by a defective fork lift or fell in a snowy parking lot that your employer paid someone else to plow, you could possibly be compensated by the third parties. You would also be eligible to receive workers' compensation benefits.
