You May Be Entitled to Additional Compensation
Workers who are injured on the job are entitled to workers' compensation benefits from their employer. In some cases, the accident is the fault of a third party, such as the manufacturer of a defective machine. If your workplace accident was caused by a negligent third party, we may be able to collect damages in addition to your workers' comp benefits.

Did Another Party Cause Your Injury?
Whether your work injury was caused in part or in full by a negligent third party, we can file a personal injury claim. We have extensive experience with numerous types of injury claims and know how to obtain compensation from companies of all sizes.
Some of the most common third-party work accident claims are cause by the following:
- Vehicle accidents — Car and truck accidents are among the most frequent causes of work-related injuries. If you are a professional driver or an employee who drives often for work, such as a salesperson, you may be entitled to compensation for a vehicle accident on the job.
- Defective products — Whether you are injured by defective tools, machinery, vehicles or another product, we may be able to collect damages from the manufacturer.
- Defective safety equipment — When safety equipment fails, the results can be catastrophic. We have the knowledge and experience to prove that the product's failure resulted in your injury.
- Contractors or subcontractors — On many construction sites, there are numerous employers, contractors and subcontractors. If a worker from another employer causes your injury, we can file a personal injury claim against that employer.
Our lawyers regularly work with top experts who provide testimony about the product's defect and how it caused injury or wrongful death. We may also consult medical experts and financial experts to provide testimony about the extent of your injury and the projected cost of medical bills.
