Experienced Third-Party Claim Lawyers
Construction sites often involve multiple contractors who work on the same project. Such sites also involve the use of heavy equipment, such as cranes, construction vehicles and heavy equipment that can cause serious injuries. The potential for third-party claims is high in construction site accidents.
What Is A Third-Party Claim?
If the accident was caused by a third party — such as a contractor who works for a different employer, the property owner or the manufacturer of a piece of equipment — you can sue the third party. Unlike workers’ compensation, which provides benefits only for medical costs and a portion of your wage loss, a third-party claim can enable you to obtain compensation for all losses such as pain and suffering.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, the third-party claim can therefore provide significantly more compensation than you would receive from the workers’ compensation system alone.
Our lawyers are thorough in their approach and aggressively represent every client in third-party cases.
