We Can Assist You with a Third-Party Work Injury Claim
Workers’ compensation benefits are available to injured workers in most industries, and can cover medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses resulting from accidents. If you have been injured at work, you may be able to recover additional benefits outside of the workers’ compensation system.

What Is a Third-Party Work Injury?
A third-party injury occurs when a worker is injured by a person or company other than the employer. For example, a roofer from one company could be injured by a defective nail gun or another subcontractor, or an oilfield worker could be injured by a rig mover or other third-party contractor. Third-party work injury claims give employees a way to hold other entities accountable for their negligence.
Although an employer may be partially responsible for a worker’s injuries, there are few cases in which employers face liability. Employees who collect workers’ compensation benefits cannot sue their employer for additional damages. It is a no-fault system that does not rely on the proof of liability to allow benefits. In most cases, employers are only held liable for worker injuries if gross negligence or misconduct is to blame. These cases are rare and include instances in which an employee is extremely negligent, commits safety violations, or knowingly harms a worker.

The Webb, Stokes & Sparks legal team can help you recover the compensation you deserve following an on-the-job injury. Although workers’ compensation benefits may be available to you, those benefits may not cover all of the expenses that have resulted from your injury.
