What Is A Third-Party Liability Claim?
A third-party liability claim is filed to collect compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering from the negligent party who caused your workplace injury. A third-party claim would be filed for a job-related injury was caused by the negligence of someone or something other than you, your employer or your co-worker. For example, if you have injuries from a compressor blowing up on the job, you may be able to file a claim against the company that manufactured the compressor. If the compressor was being operated by an independent contractor on your job site, you may be able to name the independent contractor in the third-party liability claim as well.
If you were dropping off a deposit for your boss and tripped over a crack in the bank’s parking lot, the bank may be responsible for your injuries due to unsafe premises. Besides workers’ compensation, you can also pursue damages for your workplace injury by filing a personal injury claim or premises liability lawsuit. However, these types of claims are complicated and need the right evidence for a successful case. It is best to work with an experienced attorney to get the full and just compensation for your injuries.
