Is A Third Party Responsible For Your Work Injury?
Have you been injured at work? If so, who caused your injury? Some work accidents are just that – accidents. Others are caused by employer negligence, such as failure to maintain safe property conditions. Others yet may be caused by a negligent third party, such as a product manufacturer.
If your work injury was caused by a third party, you may be eligible for additional compensation through a third-party liability claim. The Law Office of Deborah M. Truscello represents clients in all Workers’ Compensation matters, from initial claims to appeals and third-party claims.
Third-Party Claims In Pennsylvania
If a party other than your employer caused or contributed to your work injury, what options are available? You may be eligible for additional compensation in addition to Workers’ Compensation benefits. Examples of a third-party claim causing a work injury include:
- The manufacturer of a faulty power tool or machine
- Another driver who caused a car accident involving a company vehicle
- Negligence by a contractor or co-worker
- A business client whose dangerous property conditions caused an accident during an off-site visit
