Third Party Injury Claims

While workers’ compensation insurance does cover medical bills and some lost income for on-the-job injuries for employees in Alabama, it is not full compensation. Unfortunately, even if an employer was negligent and caused the injury, you cannot sue your employer in a personal injury lawsuit. However, in many cases, there may be options to pursue compensation through a third-party injury claim that can help cover the costs and damages associated with a work-related injury.

Examples of Third-Party Injury Accident Lawsuits

When a work accident occurs, it may be caused by another entity, but still covered by workers’ compensation. For example, if you deliver goods for your employer, you could be injured in a vehicle accident while performing your job. Because you were at work, your injuries will be covered under workers’ comp if your employer has this insurance. However, if another driver caused the accident, you may also pursue a third-party claim against them to help cover the costs of your injury. Possible liable third-parties in work accidents can include:

  • Accidents caused by contractors
  • At-fault drivers in vehicle accidents
  • Manufacturers of defective products
  • Premises liability claims against other businesses

There are many circumstances when a third party may be liable for your injury. This can be beneficial as you can receive your workers’ compensation benefits and pursue a separate claim against the third-party. These claims can be worth substantially more than the compensation you can receive through workers’ comp alone, helping you minimize the impact of your injury on your family and lifestyle.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.
