Were You Injured At Work By A Third Party?
Our attorneys help you hold negligent parties responsible
You've been injured in a workplace accident. But what if a third party's negligence was responsible for your injury? You may be able to seek compensation from that party. The workers' compensation attorneys at Lourie Law Firm can help you take legal action to hold negligent third parties responsible.
A third party is someone other than an employee or the employer. For instance, your injury could have involved a delivery person, a member of a cleaning crew, or a contractor doing a job at the workplace. A third party can also be the manufacturer of a defective piece of equipment. If person's or company's negligence led to an accident that caused you injury at the workplace, you may be able to seek financial compensation. This can include damages for:
- Medical expenses (past and future)
- Lost wages (past and future)
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
You can pursue a claim against a third party in addition to collecting workers' compensation benefits. However, the entire process can be complex. In order to move a third-party claim forward, we must be able to prove that negligence led to your injury. That's why you need an experienced workers' compensation lawyer on your side.
Getting results for clients
Our legal team will conduct a thorough investigation of your accident. We'll try to find out how your accident happened and what caused it. We'll review all documentation related to the incident and also interview witnesses. If needed, we'll consult experts.
This process can take time. And the third party - and that party's insurance company - aren't likely to cooperate. In fact, they'll try to dismiss your claim completely. But Lourie Law Firm has the resources to see your case through to the end. Our goal is to resolve the case in a way that works best for you and meets your needs. We focus on building a strong case to convince the insurance company to negotiate a favorable settlement. But if we have to fight them in court, we are prepared to take them there as well.
What happened wasn't your fault. You shouldn't have to pay.
If you're wondering if you can afford that kind of representation, you can. We work on a contingency fee basis. So you owe us nothing until we come through for you. Our firm will pay the costs needed to move your case forward. We want you to stay focused on getting better.
