Construction Third-Party Injuries

Injured on the job? You may be eligible for more than workers' comp.

If you were injured while working, you may be entitled to more than just Ohio workers' compensation benefits. It depends on who was involved and who was at fault.

Depending on the outcome of our evaluation, we may be able to initiate a third-party personal injury lawsuit in addition to workers' compensation and other benefits.

What is a third-party injury claim?

Essentially, third-party cases involve a worker and someone who is not his or her employer. For example, many so-called third-party injury claims involve the construction industry because of the number of subcontractors who might be at a work site. Other examples of possible third-party injury claims include:

  • Someone who drives for an employer (as a salesperson or delivery person) and is injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by another driver who is not the employer
  • A warehouse worker who is injured when a truck picks up a load at the warehouse
  • An independent contractor such as a temporary worker or home health care worker
  • A delivery person who is injured while completing the delivery route off-site

These examples are but a few of the possible situations that could lead to third-party injury claims. It is important to discuss the circumstances of the accident with a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer because each set of circumstances is different. At Elk & Elk, our attorneys can advise you about your options. We will investigate the accident thoroughly, identify all the parties involved, determine whether they could be liable and build a strong case seeking full compensation after an on-the-job injury caused by a third party.
