Get The Help That You Need After A Workplace Accident
Workers’ compensation is a program designed to ensure that injured employees get medical care and other benefits, while employers are protected from litigation. When the system works as it should, an injured construction worker, health care worker or grocery store employee receives the necessary support to focus on getting better.
Workers’ Compensation And Third-Party Claims
In most workers’ compensation cases, there is no need and no reason to show that an employer was negligent. However, if a third party’s negligence contributed to a workplace accident, that person or organization can be held accountable. A third-party liability claim will be similar to any personal injury case – separate from, and over and above, any workers’ compensation benefits.
At Potter, Carmine & Associates, P.A., we assist clients from the beginning to the end of their legal case(s) after they have been hurt on the job. We help with initial workers’ compensation claims, as well as with contested cases in which the workers’ compensation insurer denies, delays or undervalues a claim. Meanwhile, we investigate and evaluate the facts behind the accident to determine whether the injured worker can also bring a lawsuit against a third party, such as one of the following:
- A delivery service that had a vehicle at a job site and caused our client to be injured
- An inspector, installer or repair service provider whose poor performance contributed to our client’s injuries
- An equipment manufacturer that sold faulty power tools or other equipment that triggered an accidental injury
