Every employee has the right to work in a safe place. When a job is inherently dangerous, precautions are absolutely essential. Failing to take those precautions can lead to disaster. At the law firm of Webb, Stokes, & Sparks, our personal injury lawyers take time to listen to what has happened, and how your injury has affected your life. We also explain what the law is, and how that law affects your case. For over fifty years, we have helped clients stay informed and get the settlement or award that they deserve.

Third Party Claims
In addition to workers compensation claims, a person injured on the job may have a third party claim against the person or company responsible for the injury. This would be persons other than the employer or co-employee causing the injury.
Some examples of third party claims include:
- A contractor hires a plasterer, who inadvertently injures a sheetrock worker employed by someone else.
- A window washer knocks something off a scaffold that falls on someone walking on the sidewalk below.
- A plant owner hires someone to install a fabricator. The fabricator is defective, and injures an on-premises subcontractor.
