Third-party claims are generally brought against private individuals or companies when their negligence caused your accident. Yet oftentimes a third party injury is more complicated that it may initially appear. Many such cases require methodical investigation and a far-reaching knowledge of third party liability law in order to accurately identify and hold a third party accountable. Even seemingly irrelevant oversights or errors in the claim process can undermine the success of a lawsuit, or reduce the monetary award and benefits you receive.

Third Party Workers Compensation Claims
Third party claims are especially common at construction sites, which can be filled with dangerous machinery and other safety hazards. Even when site managers take routine safety precautions, a responsible and hard-working construction crew can suffer from unexpected injuries. This is because the primary contractor or sub-contractor is not always directly at fault (in which case the injury would be considered a workers compensation claim, and come with restraint on the total amount of benefits an injured employee could seek). Many times, on closer examination an experienced lawyer will find that a defective tool or piece of equipment caused the worker injury. In this way, a great number of construction site injuries qualify as third party liability cases, which do not limit the amount of damages an injured party can pursue in a lawsuit.
Another vulnerable group includes delivery truck drivers, who work in inherently hazardous conditions simply by spending their days on the road where they are at risk of a car or truck accident. If a defect in the car or another driver caused your accident, contact a third party claim attorney today.
