What Is Third-Party Liability?
A case where neither you nor your employer is at fault for your injury may seem difficult to understand at first. However, it is more common than you may think. You may have a third-party liability case if your injuries at work were a result of:
- A malfunctioning tool or unsafe machine
- The actions of a customer or supplier
- The use of a defective vehicle
- A third party, such as a delivery driver, hitting you at work
- Dangerous machinery
- Hazardous property conditions that the site owner should have prevented or corrected
These are just a few examples. You can be injured by a third party at work in many other ways. Because these cases are typically complex, they require the assistance of an experienced attorney. We will take on the burdens of your case so you can concentrate on healing and getting back to work.
