We Pursue Both Employers and Third Parties for Compensation.
Do you know who is responsible for your work injury? You might think it is your employer. Chances are, you may be correct. However, there might be other parties we can also pursue for additional compensation.
There are significant differences in how we seek damages from an employer versus a third party. With an employer, we typically have to go through the workers’ compensation program, whereas we can go after a third party through more traditional means.
Workers’ compensation is an insurance program. To cover each employee a company has, they pay premiums into the program. When a worker suffers an injury on the job, they can file a workers’ compensation claim. If the claim is valid, then the program—not the employer itself—compensates the injured party.
As long as your employer is in good standing with the workers’ compensation program, we probably cannot file a lawsuit outside the program. We have to go through workers’ compensation to get paid. Sometimes this process is quick and easy, but often it is not. Your employer has an incentive to deny your claim if possible. They can do so by arguing that your injury was your fault. For instance, they may say you were drunk, on drugs, or otherwise behaving recklessly.
Our attorneys can anticipate any pushback from your employer and counter it to make sure you win your claim. We have seen every scenario you can think of and will be ready for anything that comes our way. Contact us today with any questions you have about workers’ compensation.
When we take your case, our first task is to examine the details of your injury. One thing we are looking for is to identify all potentially responsible parties. We will almost certainly file a workers’ compensation claim, but there might be a third party that we can also pursue for damages. If so, we use traditional means to hold them responsible for your compensation, such as negotiating a settlement or filing a lawsuit.
Manufacturers are common third parties responsible for work injuries. We might be able to get compensation from a manufacturer if your injury occurred while you were using work equipment. For a successful case, we have to prove that you were using the equipment for its intended purpose and that a defect or flaw caused your injury.
If your injury occurred on a work site your employer does not own, we can potentially seek damages from the site owner or manager. Site owners have a responsibility to workers and visitors on their property. It is their duty to keep the site free from hazards and promptly tend to any dangers that emerge. Failure to do so leaves the site owner open to liability if a worker or guest suffers an injury on the site.
Our thorough investigation into your injury will uncover all potentially responsible parties. Then, we can start gathering evidence against them, organizing it, and building our case.
