Mount Laurel Third-Party Liability Claims Attorneys
If you were injured in a work-related accident, you may be limited in damages you can seek by New Jersey workers’ compensation laws. Those laws allow employees to collect compensation even in cases where they were responsible for causing the accident. In exchange, the injured employee is not allowed to sue his or her employer for pain and suffering and other forms of damage allowed in personal injury lawsuits. Depending on the nature of your accident, you may be entitled to pursue those damages from parties other than your employer. These are known as third-party liability claims and they can greatly expand the compensation you can seek.
At Costello, Mains & Silverman, LLC, our skilled trial lawyers know how to find every available source of compensation for your injuries. We are dedicated advocates for the rights of injured workers. Contact us online or call 866-944-3371 to schedule a confidential consultation.
The Facts Of Your Accident
If you drive a car or truck as part of your job, a simple example of third-party liability is if you are injured by another driver who was behaving negligently. If you are struck by a driver who is impaired by alcohol, that driver’s auto insurance may be more important than your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance in getting you the relief you deserve. In a construction accident, the injuries may have been caused by a defectively designed tool or by the negligent conduct of a trespasser on the work site. By understanding your accident and the liability coverage of all parties involved, we may be able to get you greater compensation for what you have suffered.
