What Is A Third-Party Liability Claim?
There are certain circumstances where an employer may not be legally responsible for on-the-job injuries of its employees. This happens when someone who is not the victims’ employer or co-worker (called a third party) injures a worker.
There are a range of scenarios that fall under third-party liability, including:
- An employee who is in a car accident while on the clock/driving a company vehicle.
- A contractor, subcontractor, delivery person, etc. injures an employee on-site.
- A worker is off-site and is injured on someone else’s property.
- A worker is injured by a defective machine, product or piece of equipment.
As an injured worker, you are entitled to sue the negligent third party for damages associated with your injuries, medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
