Third Party Claims
Did Another Company's Negligence Cause Your Injuries?
Were you hurt while using a defective product in your workplace? Was your injury caused by someone on your jobsite not employed by your company, such as an outside contractor?
If so, you may have a third party claim, and we can help. Third party claims are separate from workers' compensation claims. You cannot sue your employer or co-worker for causing your illness or injury – you can only file for workers' compensation coverage. However, if your injury was caused by someone other than your employer or co-worker, you may have a third party claim personal injury case.
Third party claims are complex and involve different types of law including workers' compensation and personal injury. We have experienced attorneys in both of these practice areas who are ready to help you get the compensation you deserve.

What is a Third Party Claim?
A third party claim is an additional claim against another party who is not your employer. You (the injured worker) are considered the first party, your employer and other employees are the second party, and a third party is anyone other than you, your employer, or a fellow employee.
Examples of third parties include:
- An outside contractor operating machinery on the worksite
- The manufacturer of a defective product used in the workplace
- Anyone on the jobsite not employed by your employer
If an individual or a company like the ones above caused your work injury, you may be entitled to compensation.
We know third party claims are confusing, and that's why it's important to get legal help to protect your right to compensation. Having an experienced attorney on your side can mean the difference between getting the compensation you deserve and losing out on money you need for medical bills and lost wages.
