Attorney for Third-Party Lawsuit in Fort Worth
Most Texas employees are aware of the state's worker compensation program and benefits to help pay for a portion of lost wages and medical expenses. However, when an on-the-job accident occurs in Fort Worth or Dallas, it's possible that the accident was at least partially due to the negligence of other people, companies, or manufacturers unaffiliated with your employer. While employees are generally unable to file lawsuit against their employer for workplace injuries, many employees are not aware that additional compensation may be available through a third-party lawsuit.
Third-party accidents are particularly common in industries in which defective heavy equipment or safety violations lead directly to an accident, such as construction accidents, oil and gas field accidents, or factory accidents. If you were injured at work and suspect it was partially due to the negligence of a person or company other than your employer, you may have grounds to file a third-party accident claim in Texas. Contact attorney Coby L. Wooten, P.C. today to discuss your legal rights with a third-party lawsuit attorney in Fort Worth.
What is a third-party claim?
When involved in an on-the-job accident, a third-party claim may arise when the accident occurred due to the negligent behavior of an individual, subcontractor or contractor who is not your employer. For example, if a worker is injured in a scaffolding collapse on a construction site, the injured worker may be able to bring a claim against the scaffolding company on the grounds that the company failed to properly maintain or build the scaffold, directly leading to the collapse and subsequent injuries.
