Dayton, Ohio, Workers' Compensation Third-Party Liability Claims Lawyers
Workers' compensation is a program that protects both workers and employers in Ohio. Workers receive free medical care and wage loss benefits following a work-related injury or illness. Employers receive protection from employee lawsuits. In most cases, workers' compensation is an employee's only source of recovery for an injury resulting from an accident at work. However, there are exceptions. One is a "third-party liability claim."
At Hochman & Plunkett, our lawyers are committed to helping injured workers secure the maximum compensation following a workplace accident. If your injury resulted from the negligence of a "third party," our lawyers will fight to obtain compensation beyond workers' compensation through our civil justice system.
What Is A Third-Party Liability Claim?
While you generally cannot sue your employer or a negligent co-worker for a work-related accident, you can sue a third party. A third party is basically anyone who does not work directly for your employer. Examples of third parties include:
- Other drivers in motor vehicle accidents
- Contractors who work at your work site
- Equipment manufacturers
- Suppliers of chemicals or other hazardous products used your work site
If you are injured as a result of the negligence of a third party, you can seek compensation for all of your damages, including pain and suffering. Our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case for third-party liability claims. For your convenience, we have offices in Dayton, Cincinnati, Springfield, Troy, and Columbus.
