What is a third-party lawsuit?

Workers’ compensation can be hard to obtain, and it is rare for several victims even when it is awarded. In some circumstances, a third party other than the employer can be found to have fault for an individual’s injuries and could be held responsible for damages. In the event that a person suffers a severe injury as a result of another party’s negligence, that party could be held accountable for the injuries sustained.

Sometimes, another co-worker could be seen at fault, but other reasons can be far more difficult. When a person is injured on the job because of a defective part of the machinery, the person or business that manufactured the product or the person or business responsible for maintaining it could be held liable for damages.

Some more instances of potential third-party claims can include the following:

  • Landowners
  • Distributors
  • Maintenance Providers
  • Contractors
  • Subcontractors
  • Drivers
  • Equipment Manufacturers
  • Suppliers
  • Other Individuals
