Accomplished firm assists workers with third-party claims

In addition to workers’ compensation claims, we help workers suffering on-the-job injuries that may afford them the right to file suit in court against third parties. Such cases may stem from:

  • Motor vehicle accidents — Vehicle accidents and collisions take place in a number of different employment situations and can range from a highway accident in a commercial vehicle to a construction vehicle accident on a job site to a transportation carrier accident.
  • Pedestrian accidents — Vehicle accidents can also injure workers who are bystanders or pedestrians. A road worker may be struck by a vehicle speeding through a construction zone, a police officer may be struck while directing traffic or a deliveryman may be hit while exiting his vehicle. In each case, a non-employer may be liable.
  • Slip and fall accidents — Workers can slip, trip, or fall while on the job in a variety of ways, from slipping in spilled liquids, tripping over debris or unsecured building materials or falling off a ladder, stepladder, balcony or scaffolding.

In each of these cases, there may be a third-party claim available with the possibility of recovery of damages for pain and suffering. If you suffered such a personal injury while on the job, we will advocate for your right to obtain the benefits you need.

If you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.
