Injuries Caused by Another Party
Injuries sustained while in a factory, operating a vehicle or working on a construction site could entitle you to benefits under Tennessee Workers Compensation. If negligence of a third party (someone for whom you don’t directly work) was the reason for your injury, under Tennessee Personal Injury Laws, you could be entitled to a Third Party Lawsuit. For example, if you were hit by another vehicle while operating one for your employer, you could have a claim against whomever was the cause of the accident.
Defective equipment or tools that are commonly used are another cause of Third Party Injury claims. Our firm can assist you in filing a case against the defective equipment’s manufacturer. Frequently the monetary damages a Third Party Claim generates are greater than the those under a Workers Compensation settlement. Contact us online or call us at 800-705-2121 for a free consultation.
