When A Third-Party Liability Claim Can Bring Financial Relief Beyond Workers’ Comp
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system that covers injured employees’ medical care and other benefits, such as partial replacement of lost wages, with no need to prove negligence on the part of employers.
However, sometimes someone other than an employer is responsible for a construction accident. A third-party liability claim may bring an injured worker additional compensation above and beyond workers’ compensation benefits through a separate personal injury lawsuit.
Our trial attorneys at Greenberg Law P.C. evaluate construction site accidents and other types of workplace injuries to determine whether a third-party liability claim or lawsuit is an option in addition to a workers’ compensation claim.
Examples Of Third-Party Negligence
At construction sites, the negligence of another person or organization – not the employer – sometimes leads to accidents and leaves open the possibility of a third-party liability claim. Examples of negligent third parties may include the following:
- A delivery service
- A tool manufacturer that made and sold defective products
- A subcontractor
- A property owner who did not properly tend to hazards
- An inspection or repair service
