Work Accidents Caused by a Third Party
Typically, when an accident occurs at a worksite, workers’ compensation benefits kick in. Workers’ comp was created so that injured workers cannot bring a lawsuit against their employer.
However, if a third party—a person or company on the job site other than the employer—causes or even contributes to a work accident, the injured person can pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault party.
Third parties often present on job sites that can cause accidents include:
- A negligent subcontractor or employee from another company, or
- The manufacturer of a defective machine or product.
When dangerous or malfunctioning equipment leads to an accident at work, you may be entitled to additional compensation from the manufacturer in excess of your workers’ compensation settlement. Our defective equipment lawyers will discuss your options for pursuing a third-party liability claim if applicable to your situation.
