Third-Party Liability in Work Accidents
In some case, you may be able to hold third-party entities responsible
for your injuries, such as contractors, maintenance companies, equipment
manufacturers, or another party that frequents your place of work. In
these cases, normal personal injury laws apply.
Examples of common workplace accidents caused by third parties:
- Slip and fall caused by a cleaning company's failure to put clear signage
after wiping floors
- If a manufacturer created defective office equipment and a worker is injured
while using it
- If a non-employee on a construction site caused an injury to an employee
- If you were driving while on the job and a negligent motorist collided
into your vehicle, causing injuries to you
Third party claims can provide additional benefits not available in workers'
compensation, such as costs for pain and suffering, higher benefits for
lost wages and medical costs, and other non-economic damages.
