Third Party Workplace Accidents
You may be eligible for a workers' compensation third-party claim
An on-the-job injury may involve a third-party claim if someone other than your employer is responsible in the accident. For example, if you are an employee operating a machine that is maintained by an outside company (a third party) and you are injured because of improper maintenance, you may have a right to file suit against that third party. In third-party claims, it's important to choose an aggressive lawyer with experience. For a free consultation, talk to a personal injury lawyer in San Antonio. Call 1-800-455-1054.
Third-party claims may involve a construction accident, where several subcontractors and other third parties may be liable. For instance, claims could be filed against a product manufacturer, building engineer or delivery truck driver.
Examples of third-party workplace injury claims
Other examples of third party claims growing out of workplace injuries include the following:
- An injury while working at unsafe premises owned by someone other than your employer.
- Driving on the job and suffering injuries caused by a motorist who is not hired by your employer.
- Injury on the job due to defectively manufactured equipment.
- Injury on the job because of poor inspections conducted by independent safety inspectors.
Third party claims can be filed in cases that result in all types of workplace injuries, from brain injury to burns and loss of sight.
