Injured by Third Party Negligence? We’re on Your Side
We Serve Clients in Chicago, Joliet, Waukegan and throughout Cook County, Lake County and Will County.
In most cases, people suffering work-related injuries will receive workers’ compensation benefits to cover medical care and a portion of lost wages. However, workers’ compensation does not fully compensation accident victims for their financial losses or their pain and suffering. Pursuing a claim of third party liability may be the answer for achieving full and fair financial recovery.
At the Chicago area law firm of Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, we’re on your side. Our personal injury lawyers have decades of experience helping people injured on the job determine whether they have a third party liability claim in addition to their workers’ compensation claim.
Although it is our goal to help you achieve the compensation you need to move forward after a workplace accident and injury, our focus is on you, our client. We take the time necessary to truly understand your needs and how we can best represent your interests. Contact us to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case. We represent clients throughout Chicagoland, including the cities of Joliet, Waukegan and Zion, and the counties of Cook, Lake and Will.
What Is Third Party Liability?
A third party liability claim is a lawsuit that holds someone, in addition to your employer, responsible for your workplace accident. Unlike a workers’ compensation claim, a third party claim often allows you to collect full wage reimbursement and compensation for your pain and suffering. A third party liability claim may also make it possible for you to see the doctor of your choice rather than one mandated by workers’ compensation.
When Does Third Party Liability Apply?
Determining who is ultimately responsible for your workplace accident can be complex. Our attorneys carefully examine what took place to establish liability for your injuries. In addition to your employer, a third party may be accountable in situations similar to the following:
- Injury in a car accident, truck accident or pedestrian accident during the course of your work
- Injury in a construction accident caused by a contractor
- Injury at work resulting from the use of a defective or faulty product
- Injury from a slip and fall accident caused by improper workplace maintenance
