Understanding The Foundations Of Third-Party Personal Injury Claims
In many cases, workplace injuries are not the sole fault of the employer. In cases like this, a skilled attorney can hold other parties accountable for the damages that result. For instance, if a defective table say injures a construction worker, they likely also have a claim against the table saw manufacturer. Similarly, if a truck driver loses control after a tire explodes, the tire company or the truck maintenance company may bear some of the responsibility for the crash.
A third-party injury claim ensures that those responsible for the root causes of your injury also are held accountable both legally and financially. These cases are often hard-fought and require intimate knowledge of the law but can make a substantial difference in the resources available to you and your loved ones during recovery.
