If you’ve been injured on the job, you need to understand that you may have options beyond a simple workers’ compensation claim. Victims of worksite accidents and industrial injuries may also be entitled to seek additional compensation based on negligence of a party other than the employer. These latter cases, sometimes called third-party claims, come into play when someone other than the employer contributes to the cause of an accident.
The work-related injury lawyers at Smith Haughey can help you explore all aspects of your workplace accident to determine if a third party is responsible for the harm you’ve suffered. If so, we will vigorously pursue full and fair compensation from all negligent parties. Our goal is to ensure that you and your family are taken care of for as long as you need it.
When we accept your work-related injury case, we will usually enact a contingent fee arrangement—meaning we will not get paid until you do. We believe in every case we accept, and we put everything we have towards fighting for you.*
*Because of our firm’s traditional client base, we will not accept personal injury or professional malpractice cases against health care providers or attorneys.
There are many work-related accidents and injuries that can give rise to third-party claims. We have experience handling all types of third-party claims, including construction site injuries, auto and truck accidents, burns, amputations, and more, which may be due to faulty machinery, negligent independent contractors or property owners, or other factors.
