Was Your Accident Caused By A Third Party?

Under most circumstances, collecting workers' compensation for your on-the-job injury is the only claim you have against your employer. However, if another party is responsible for causing your injury or illness, you may be entitled to file a third-party lawsuit for additional compensation. In many cases, third-party lawsuits are the only way to recover monetary damages for pain and suffering resulting from your injuries.

I am attorney Steven L. Morgan of Brunswick, Georgia, and I am experienced in third-party claims. I also take pride in offering the personal service and responsive representation you deserve. Let me help you understand your full range of options for recovering compensation after a job-related accident.

Examples Of Third-Party Liability Cases

Here are a few examples of potential third-party lawsuits:

  • You were driving a company vehicle as part of your job when you were hit by a drunk driver.
  • You were using a power saw when it broke and injured you. The saw turned out to have a serious manufacturing flaw.
  • You were working on a construction site when a subcontractor from a different company caused an accident.

You May Be Able To Recover Extra Money

Workers' compensation in Georgia provides money to cover medical bills and time off work, but it doesn't provide money to make up for the emotional trauma and physical pain you experienced. If you have a personal injury claim against a third party, however, you can seek compensation for your pain and suffering. This can potentially provide a significant amount of extra money for you.
