Examples of Third-Party Claims that Can Arise As a Result of Workplace Accidents
Workers that are injured on the job typically pursue workers’ compensation to secure financial compensation for their injuries. This compensation is paid through their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance policy. However, there are cases where workers can pursue parties other than their employers for compensation. This is when the accident that caused their injuries was a result of the negligence of a third party. Some common examples of third-party claims that may arise as a result of work-related accidents include:
- Motor vehicle accidents – Employees can claim compensation for injuries suffered in an accident that was caused by a reckless or negligent driver
- Premises liability claims – Workers can make claims against owners of properties with unsafe conditions that resulted in an accident. For example, workers can sue a client if they were injured on the client’s property as a result of hazardous conditions on the property.
- Product liability claims – Workers can recover compensation for injuries resulting from the use of defective products. For example, a worker can sue a manufacturer for an injury sustained while using a defective piece of equipment on the job.
- Negligence claims – Workers can pursue compensation for the negligence of independent contractors that caused their injuries. For example, an injured construction worker may pursue compensation from the company that constructed scaffolding that was worn out and caused their injury.
