North Carolina Work Injury Accident Lawyer
When most people think of on-the-job injuries, they think of workers’ compensation as the source that they will have to rely on for any compensation or medical treatment that they require. That is not always the case.
For workers whose injuries can be traced to some other party such as a contractor who is also working at the same location or the manufacturer of a defective or dangerous tool, piece of equipment or other item on the job site there may be grounds for pursuing compensation from that third party in addition to your workers’ comp benefits.
At Ganly & Ramer, P.L.L.C., our Asheville third-party claims attorney has decades of experience helping workers secure the full compensation that they deserve from all available sources, including third parties and workers’ compensation insurance. Our attorneys are members of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum for having secured multiple verdicts or settlements in excess of $1 million for accident victims or their families.
Workplace Injuries Caused By Another Party
Third-party claims can come about when someone else on the work site is responsible for the conditions that led to your injury. This can include a manufacturer or distributor of defective equipment or the employees of another contractor.
Construction sites often have numerous contractors working side by side. Given the fact that everyone has to work in such close proximity, mistakes made by one employee can create dangerous conditions for the employees of other contractors. If someone gets hurt because of such carelessness, that other contractor or party needs to be held responsible. Situations like this occur in all manner of workplaces, not just construction sites. Anywhere employees of different employers work side by side can be a place where a third-party claim can occur.
