Philadelphia Third-Party Claim Lawyer

For most workplace injuries, the Workers’ Compensation system provides the sole source for financial recovery. However, if your injury was caused by the carelessness or negligence of a third party, you can file a personal injury claim in a court of law and seek special damages, including pain and suffering, loss of future income and your spouse may also have a claim for loss of consortium.

But many Pennsylvanians injured on the job might not even realize they could be entitled to receive damages above and beyond a standard Workers’ Compensation claim.

To determine whether you have a valid third-party claim, you want a knowledgeable, experienced and aggressive workplace injury lawyer. We can help you make the right decisions about your case, and get you all the benefits and damages to which you are entitled under state and federal law.

Elements that May Indicate Third Party Liability in a Workplace Accident

A third-party claim may arise from a variety of circumstances:

  • You may have been injured in a car accident caused by another motorist while traveling for your job.
  • You could be injured by a dangerous or defective product, such as a tool, machine or piece of equipment, or slip and fall on someone’s property while performing your job.
  • You may be injured by the wrongful acts of another subcontractor on the job.
