Many people who are injured at work believe that workers’ compensation is the only way they can receive money to pay their medical expenses and make up for lost wages. However, in many cases, workers’ comp is not nearly enough to adequately compensate an injured worker for the costs of the injuries, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In many workplace injury cases, there are avenues of possible recovery to explore in addition to workers compensation.
Our Carmel personal injury attorneys have the skill, understanding, and experience needed to determine if there is another feasible avenue of recovery beyond workers’ compensation, including a third party liability claim. Below are examples of how we have helped those who have been seriously injured at work when workers comp simply is not enough.
Third Party Liability Claims ∙ Compensation for Workplace Accidents
Injured workers are generally entitled to workers’ compensation regardless of who was at fault. But the amount that an injured worker receives from workers compensation is often not nearly enough to truly cover the expenses of the injury. If another person, company, or other type of entity—other than you or your employer—is responsible for the injuries, our law firm might be able to bring a third party liability claim for further compensation.
We handle third party liability claims for many construction accidents, including:
- Forklift accidents
- Trenching accidents
- Scaffold and ladder accidents
- Falls from elevation on construction sites
- Lack of OSHA fall protection
- Ironworker injury
We have a track record of successful verdicts and settlements. With more than 50 combined years of experience, our construction attorneys know how to get you the money you truly need for the injuries you have suffered.
