Workers’ Compensation And Third-Party Liability Claims
Most construction and workplace accident cases resulting in injury to workers go through the state’s workers’ compensation system. This system is designed to cover lost wages and medical expenses. It relieves employers of liability in accidents sustained by their workers. However, working your way through the system is not always easy and denied claims are common. That is why it is important to hire a law firm that knows how to build claims properly and function as your staunch advocate.
Sometimes, a job injury may have been due to the negligence or wrongdoing of a third party. Examples of this include employees who drive company vehicles as part of their job hit in traffic accidents by at-fault drivers or construction workers who are injured due to manufacturing defects of heavy equipment or tools used on the job site.

Furthermore, construction companies or other employers who knowingly violate state or federal safety regulations in their workplaces may be subject to claims and lawsuits outside of the workers’ compensation system. Where proof is shown that they put their workers at risk, they may be held liable for additional compensation not available through workers’ compensation, including recovery for pain and suffering.
