Maximizing Compensation In Third-Party Claims
The construction industry and other labor intensive occupations often have multiple entities working at the same location. Drivers may suffer a work-related injury due to the negligence of other drivers. Most workers know that workers’ compensation benefits are available for work-related injuries. However, when a third party — someone who is not a co-worker or employer — is negligent in causing an accident, the victim may be able to pursue a separate personal injury claim against the negligent party.

At The Wilbers Law Firm LLC, in St. Louis, we take pride in helping injury victims obtain the full and fair compensation they deserve. When you work with our legal team, you have access to an experienced personal injury lawyer who is well-versed in workers’ compensation law. We take great strides to discover the complete facts and pursue all available sources of compensation for accident victims.
Workers’ compensation provides important benefits to cover medical bills and replace a portion of your lost wages. Yet, if someone other than your employer was negligent in causing your injuries a third-party claim may allow you to obtain far more compensation than is available in the workers’ compensation system. While accidents involving workplace injury can vary widely, some of the more common incidents that may indicate the need to evaluate a separate personal injury claim may include:
- Accidents involving another subcontractor on a busy construction site
- Loading dock injuries involving workers from separate entities
- Work-related motor vehicle accidents
- Injuries resulting from dangerous products or defective tools
- Work-related accidents related to hazards on negligently maintained property
