What are third-party lawsuits?

Workers’ compensation can be difficult to get, and it is infrequent for a number of victims even when it is granted. In some cases, a third party other than the employer can be found to have fault for an individual’s injuries and could be held liable 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 liable for damages.

In some instances, another co-worker could be found at fault, but other reasons can be far more complicated. When a person is hurt on the job as the result of a defective piece of machinery,  the person or business that manufactured the product or the person or business responsible for maintaining it could be held responsible.

Some more examples of potential third party claims may include the following:

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