If you get injured in the workplace due to the neglect of a third party, turn to worker’s compensation attorney Phil Shell. He offers representation to settle your claim and get you a satisfying case outcome.
Third-party workplace injuries are unique cases because they investigate an incident at work as well as a third party who might be accountable for it. For example, a truck driver who is injured in a motor vehicle accident can file a case against the other party. As another example, a factory worker can explore the possibility of filing a case against the manufacturer of equipment that caused their injury.
Given these examples, we can define the most common types of third-party workplace injuries:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Many third-party workplace injuries occur when an employee driving a company vehicle gets involved in a motor vehicle accident. This most commonly occurs among delivery drivers, truck drivers, home health care workers, construction workers and sales representatives.
As the injured party, you can file a worker’s compensation claim as well as a lawsuit against the third party. With our help, you can collect benefits for the actual injury and for your pain and suffering, wage loss, physical damages and additional non-economic damages.
Dangerous Workplace Conditions
Our law firm is familiar with cases wherein service workers, such as electricians and plumbers, are injured during work hours on the property of someone other than their employer.
The property owner is responsible for maintaining a safe work environment for service workers. This includes their property and equipment. So if you are injured while performing your work on somebody else’s property, you may consider filing a lawsuit for injuries not covered by your worker’s compensation claim.
This common cause of third-party workplace injuries is a result of someone else’s negligence. Injuries may occur because an equipment owner neglects to maintain their equipment. Alternatively, injuries may occur when the equipment is faulty.
