Marianna Work Injury Lawyer
Have You Been Injured on the Job in Jackson County?
Work accidents can happen in any work location—from a retail store to an office building to a construction site or while driving or walking to a location for work duties. Most work injuries are covered by workers’ compensation law which entitles you to wage and medical expense benefits. However, in some cases, a third party may have been responsible for your work injury in which case you will need legal assistance in making a third-party personal injury claim. Call the Law Offices of B. Shannon Saunders, PA for a free consultation with a Marianna work injuries lawyer.
Third-Party Personal Injury Claims for Work Injuries
A third-party claim is filed against a negligent or reckless entity whose actions or omissions led to your work-related injuries. This is someone other than your employer or a co-worker. While proof of fault is not required in a workers’ comp claim, you must prove negligence in the case of a third-party claim.
For example, this type of claim could be based on defects in work-related equipment, such as a truck with defective brakes used for a delivery company, a defective power tool used at a construction site, or a defective appliance used in a restaurant kitchen. Other examples include a worker who drives as part of his job who is then hit by a drunk driver or a sales representative falling on a slick bathroom floor that the janitorial services failed to make known at his client’s offices.
