Anyone who has been through a motor vehicle accident knows that it can be a traumatic experience. Whether the accident involved an car, motorcycle, or commercial vehicle, you have the right to take legal action against any person, company, or entity that is responsible.

As consumers, we trust that the products we purchase meet certain standards for safety. We also have to trust that the products used or prescribed by our physicians or made available to purchase are safe and free defects or flaws that could inflict injury, illness, or death.
If you have sustained injuries because of a product defect or recalled drug, you may have a product liability claim.

Work Related Injuries


 
Workplace Injuries / Workers Compensation

When you go to work, you expect that you are reasonably safe as long as you perform your job in the way you should, taking all reasonable precautions. This is true even when you are in a somewhat hazardous occupation.

Accidents still happen in the workplace, and they are often caused by existing unsafe conditions. And some employers do not carry workers' compensation insurance or the injuries suffered are so catastrophic that workers' compensation is insufficient to cover the extent of the damages.

Workers' Compensation provides benefits to workers who are injured on the job or who suffer an occupational disease arising out of and in the course of employment. The problem is that those injured at work will often get inadequate compensation through Workers' Compensation and should look into third-party lawsuits for greater compensation.

Third-party lawsuits involve another party (other than the employer). For example, if you were injured by a saw, there may be a products liability case against the saw's manufacturer. Also, if a worker was injured on a construction site, another contractor could be liable. These cases require immediate attention and expertise because the responsible third party is often difficult to locate, and the evidence (such as a piece of defective machinery) may need to be preserved. In more complex cases, the legal principles of Agency and analysis of corporate law can lead to sophisticated determinations as to who is technically an "employee" and who the "third parties" are in a given situation.

If you were injured on the job, you may be thinking about whether or not you should file suit. To take action, you need to be informed about your legal options. We provide a free case assessment so that you may take the right legal action after an accident and determine if you have a possible third-party lawsuit.
