Injuries at Work Caused by Third Parties
Typically, if you are injured at work, any claim you might have for bodily injuries would be handled by the Worker’s Compensation process. However, if the cause of your injuries is not your employer, you may be able to pursue a civil claim or lawsuit against the person or entity that caused the injury. For example, a construction worker injured by a defective bulldozer, may be able to pursue a claim against the manufacturer of the bulldozer.
Another example is a pizza delivery man injured by a negligent driver while delivering pizzas. In these situations, you should consult with a competent Worker’s Compensation attorney for guidance and you should consult with The Frank Law Firm to see if there are persons or entities other than your employer who may be liable.
Additionally, in some cases where an employer does not have Worker’s Compensation insurance, an employee may be able to pursue a personal injury claim directly against the employer, if the employer was negligent.
