Work Injury: Third Party Responsibility
If I’ve suffered an injury at work, is there anyone else that may be responsible?
Yes. Your injury may have been caused by someone other than your employer. If a person working for another company was negligent or caused your injury, that company is considered a third party. In many situations, a third party may be responsible for your injuries. It is important that you obtain the names and contact information of the people that were working with you, regardless of whether or not they witnessed your accident.
Workers’ compensation is an exclusive remedy, meaning an employee cannot bring an injury claim against their employer. An employee can, however, file suit against a third party believed to have contributed to your accident and injury.
Attorney, Nadine M. Nieto has years of experience recovering benefits for injured workers through third party claims. The Law Office of Nadine M. Nieto may be able to assist in third party claims against entities other than your employer.
