Examples Of Third-Party Claims

Third-party workers' compensation claims are more likely to be possible in certain industries like construction and those in which a worker's job is to drive a vehicle, but they may also occur in other fields of work. Some common scenarios that could prompt a third-party personal injury claim are:

  • Faulty machinery: Machine manufacturers are responsible for ensuring that the equipment they produce is in proper working order. If a machine malfunctions and causes injury to a worker, the company that manufactured it could be held liable through a third-party claim.
  • Hazardous property: Certain jobs require workers to be on other people's property. Whether you are a mail carrier and were bit by a dog, or are a plumber and fell down the crumbling steps of a client's front porch, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries.
  • Car accidents: If you are involved in a crash while driving for work, a personal injury claim may be possible if the accident was the other driver's fault.
