Third-Party Work Injury Claims

Discuss Your Case with Our Rhode Island Work Injury Lawyers

On-the-job injuries can happen in many different ways. While some can be attributed to employer negligence, some occur because of other issues. Defective equipment, the careless behavior of a contractor or vendor, and other causes can result in worker injuries. If you were injured in an on-the-job accident that was the fault of someone other than your employer, you could seek additional damages beyond your workers' compensation benefits.

In a third-party personal injury claim, injured workers have the opportunity to seek compensation from parties other than their employers for certain workplace accidents. Third-party claims do not interfere with your ability to seek workers' compensation benefits. If you have been injured on the job, you should have your case reviewed by a lawyer who can help to determine whether you may have grounds for a third-party claim.

Call (888) 281-3100 or fill out and submit an online contact form today to request a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our work injury lawyers in Rhode Island.
