Colorado Springs Third Party Liability Attorney
Financial Recovery Above and Beyond Workers’ Compensation
A work injury is covered under workers’ compensation, no matter who or what caused the accident. However, workers’ compensation may not cover all of your damages. For example, while workers’ compensation may pay most of your medical expenses, it will not pay for the pain and suffering you have experienced. To recover full compensation for all of your injuries, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim (a “third-party liability” claim) against the person who caused your injuries.
The Colorado Springs and Southern Colorado third-party liability attorneys at Weddell & Haller, P.C., put more than 35 years of experience to work when evaluating potential clients’ cases. We thoroughly review each case, taking the time to determine all paths to financial compensation. If a third-party liability claim is an option for you, we can handle both your workers’ compensation and personal injury cases. We don’t just save you time and money by taking on both cases; we also ensure that the cases are handled in a way that maximizes your recovery.
What Third Parties Are Liable for Your On-the-Job Injuries?
Workers’ compensation is meant to protect employers from liability when employees are injured in a workplace accident. Therefore, you will not be able to bring a separate lawsuit against your employer. Third-party personal injury claims are only available against individuals and companies who do not work for your employer and whose negligence caused the accidents, such as:
- Negligent drivers in work-related car or truck accidents
- Manufacturers of defective work equipment
- Negligent subcontractors, heavy equipment operators, or other parties involved in construction accidents
- Slip-and-fall work accidents that happen on another company’s property
