Work Injuries

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 work injury lawyer in Marianna.

What is a Workers' Comp Third-Party Personal Injury Claim?

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.

Examples of Third-Party Negligence

For example, third-party work negligence claims 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
  • A worker who drives as part of his job who is then hit by a drunk driver
  • A sales representative falling on a slick bathroom floor that the janitorial services failed to make known at his client’s offices

Can You Still Sue If You Accept Workers' Compensation?

There are some instances where you may be eligible to receive both a third-party settlement and workers' compensation settlement. However, it's important that you discuss your situation with a professional work injury lawyer before making any decisions.

In some cases third-party settlements can provide you with a higher settlement amount than a workers' compensation claim, and in other cases you may be required to pay back some expenses that were initially covered by workers' comp but are then covered again by your third-party settlement. Our third-party claim attorney can guide you through the process and get you maximum compensation!
