Under the law, if an employer failed to purchase workers' compensation insurance, an injured employee can bring a claim directly against the employer if the employer, or a co-worker, negligently caused the incident. We handle many cases on behalf of workers injured by the negligence of employers who did not provide workers' compensation insurance.
Workers' compensation covers all types of workplace injuries, including those caused by negligent co-workers.
However, many people are unaware of the options available to them if they were injured in an incident caused by a negligent third party such as another company or a product manufacturer.
Depending on the circumstances of your injury, we may be able to file a third-party liability claim on your behalf. You may be entitled to additional compensation if a negligent co-worker or other third party caused or contributed to your incident.
After an injury in the workplace, it is important to take these steps:
- Seek medical attention immediately;
- Report the injury to your employer;
- Talk to an attorney to understand your rights and legal options.
Having an experienced attorney on your side through the process can be extremely beneficial.
If you were injured as an employee or contract worker on a construction site, we may target the construction company who hired you, the manufacturers of the faulty equipment, or other workers whose negligence contributed to your accident. Ultimately, we are seeking damages from insurance providers.
