What is a third-party workplace accident?
Third party workplace accidents refer to all accidents caused by someone other than a co-worker or a supervisor. As mentioned above, such accidents can be caused by people working for another contractor or subcontractor on a construction site. But third party workplace accidents can also be attributed to many other people, including:
- Manufacturers of defective equipment that caused your injury
- Long-term exposure to dangerous or hazardous materials
- Drivers of vehicles that caused a car accident during work
Many other scenarios exist. And in every single case, we will take a unique approach to address your specific legal needs.
