Third-Party Claims

You May Be Eligible For Additional Money And Benefits

If your injury happened on the job, you will likely qualify for workers' compensation benefits. However, if someone other than your employer or a co-worker caused your injury, you may also be eligible for personal injury compensation, in addition to workers' compensation.

At the Connecticut law firm of D'Agosto & Howe, LLC, we are here to ensure that you receive fair, just and reasonable compensation for your work-related injury claim. With more than 40 years of combined legal experience, our Bridgeport third-party claims attorneys have the knowledge you need to pursue any workers' compensation or personal injury claim. We will explore the details of your case, advise you of your options and guide you step by step through the process.

Examples Of Third-Party Liability Cases

While workers' compensation cases are filed before the Workers' Compensation Commission and offer limited benefits, third-party claims are filed in civil court and often provide greater benefits. For instance, in a third-party claim, you may be able to recover money for your pain and suffering, your future lost wages and other damages.

Here are a few examples of potential third-party liability claims:

  • An employee is driving a company vehicle on business when he or she is injured in a collision with another motorist.
  • A construction worker is injured on a job site by a subcontractor from a different construction company.
  • An employee is operating a piece of machinery when a defective part causes the machine to malfunction, resulting in an injury.
  • A worker is harmed due to the negligence of a public utility company, such as an electrical company or gas company.
