Hurt by a Subcontractor?
Contact Austin Workers Compensation Lawyers
If you have been hurt on the job, you may have been told by your employer or a coworker that workers compensation is your only available means of relief. Depending on the facts of your case, you may be able to pursue a larger amount of compensation from the party that caused your wounds.
If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone other than your employer or a coworker, you may be able to obtain compensation through a third-party liability claim, which is a type of personal injury claim. Whereas workers compensation provides benefits for lost wages and medical expenses, a third-party claim may result in compensation for pain, suffering, property damage and other forms of compensation that are not available in a workers comp case.
Our Austin workers compensation law firm has helped injured workers for over 30 years. Founded in 1978, the founder’s son now carries on his father’s legacy of success in both personal injury and workers compensation matters.
Construction Accidents and Other Third-Party Liability Claims
Third-party liability claims often involve construction site accidents where the negligence of a subcontractor or other third party caused hazards that were unknown to workers on the site. However, third-party claims may arise in a variety of work accidents. Austin workers compensation lawyers handle cases involving:
- Scaffolding and ladder accidents
- Truck accidents
- Crane, forklift, and other heavy machinery accidents
- Loading/unloading accidents
- Construction site falls
Our Austin workers comp lawyer handles both personal injury and workers compensation cases, which means we are in a unique position to identify alternative means of recovery that may be available to you. If a dangerous product such as a dangerous power tool or defective vehicle has injured you, we can also pursue compensation through a product liability claim.
