Just as important, our investigation might show that other people or companies are responsible for your accident, in addition to your employer. You may be able to bring a separate lawsuit against them as well. This is known as a "third-party" lawsuit because it involves another person besides you and your employer.

Third-party litigation is a way to hold someone else, in addition to your employer, responsible for the injuries you received. For example, you may have been driving a work vehicle or may have been involved in a motor vehicle accident or a piece of machinery might have malfunctioned. Perhaps a defect in the equipment or component part, or even in the overall design, caused the machine to break down and gravely injure you. In these types of accidents, another individual may be responsible and have to also compensate you for your injuries.

Our attorneys have held these individuals and/or companies that cause workplace injuries responsible to get you the compensation you deserve. In addition to representing you in your workers' compensation case, we will explore every possibility of bringing a third-party lawsuit on your behalf.
