Was Your Construction Accident Caused By A Negligent Third Party?
When a construction accident is caused by someone other than a co-employee, the accident victim may have a claim against that party as well as a workers’ compensation claim. This may enable the construction worker to obtain compensation for pain and suffering in addition to workers’ compensation benefits. Third-party claims can involve complex issues of fact and law. In addition, both the third-party claim and the workers’ compensation claim must be handled correctly.

Third-Party And Safety Violation Claims
The workers’ compensation system was set up to make it easier for a worker to obtain compensation for injuries suffered on the job. In the workers’ compensation system, an injured worker does not have to sue his or her employer to obtain benefits. The system assigns strict liability on the employer, with some important exceptions:
- Third-party claims – When a workplace injury is caused by the negligence of a nonemployee, such as an equipment supplier or contractor, the worker has a claim against that party in addition to a workers’ compensation claim.
- Safety violations – When a workplace injury is caused by a safety violation on the part of the employer, the worker can sue his or her employer as well as all other negligent parties.
