Construction worker accidents and third-party claims

Although injured workers are prohibited from suing their employers for workplace injuries because of workers’ compensation laws, they still may file for a personal injury lawsuit against third parties who were responsible for their injury. This is called a “third party cause of action.” If someone other than the employer was fully or partially responsible for the cause of your injury or that of your family member or loved one, you or they may be able to sue that third party and still file your workers’ compensation claim. By contacting a skilled construction worker injury and workers’ compensation attorney at Romanucci & Blandin early on, we can obtain the necessary information, relevant medical bills and records, and work to evaluate your potential claims.
