When Does A Third-Party Claim Apply?
Our lawyers will determine whether there is some party other than your employer who is responsible for your injury. Examples of third-party claims include the following:
- If you were injured in a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident or bicycle accident in the course of your work, (for a sales representative this might include a trip that begins at home) your own car insurance and that of the driver who caused the accident are responsible for your loss.
- If you were injured in a slip-and-fall accident caused by faulty building maintenance, a construction site accident caused by property owner, or were injured by toxic exposure from your work, you may have a premises liability claim.
- If you were injured in a construction accident caused by another contractor, or in a gas explosion caused by another contractor who cut the line, you may have a claim.
- If you suffered a dog bite injury while delivering a package, you have a claim against the dog’s owner.
- If you were hurt at work as the result of faulty or defective equipment, a product defect, a car defect, a poorly designed tool or another dangerous product, you may have a products liability claim.
What Will A Third-Party Claim Cover?
Unlike workers’ compensation a personal injury or auto insurance claim entitles you to full wage reimbursement, treatment by your own physician, and possibly compensation for pain and suffering. In some cases, our attorneys can demonstrate that our client lost the potential for an even greater future income, and in other cases victims of negligence are entitled to punitive damages.
