Hurt At Work? We Do Not Let Negligent Parties Off The Hook.
Liability does not care about where you sustain an injury. Just because an accident happens at work, does not mean that you cannot hold another party liable for your injuries. This is true even if you file a successful workers’ compensation claim. If another person or party is negligent or reckless, you can still hold them accountable, and the team at Jacobs & Wallace, PLLC, will help.
After serving the Bridgeport community for years, we are proud to say that we have won the respect of Connecticut workers, employers and courts. Our attorneys use their comprehensive legal knowledge and more than 45 years of combined experience to protect the injured.
What Is A Third-Party Workers’ Compensation Claim?
A third-party workers’ compensation claim is when your workers’ compensation claim occurs alongside or in conjunction with a personal injury claim. This type of case is very common and occurs when a negligent party outside of your employer contributes to your injury. Some examples include when a speeding driver hits a delivery worker or when defective machinery leads to a construction site injury.
In these situations, your cases may intersect, meaning that the outcome of your personal injury case may affect your workers’ compensation claim or vice versa. You should not attempt to manage them by yourself. Instead, look for an attorney whom you can trust and who knows how to maximize your settlement.
