Third-Party Work Claims

When you retain us to help you after a workplace injury, we will conduct a full investigation of what happened, looking to determine whether individuals or companies other than your employer or a co-worker contributed to or caused the accident. We’ll look specifically at:

  • Whether there was negligence in the design, manufacturing or marketing of a tool, machine or piece of equipment involved in your accident
  • Whether there was carelessness or a safety responsibility by any party unrelated to your employer, such as a vendor or subcontractor
  • If you were injured in a job-related automobile accident, whether the party at fault was unrelated to your employer

Wrongful Death

We will be at your side throughout the legal process, from the initial investigation of your case to the filing of a complaint, from the gathering of evidence to trial. Our lawyers will prepare and file all required documents throughout the process, and will be strong and compassionate advocates in all hearings and proceedings.
We will help you pursue damages for all your losses, including:

  • The loss of companionship or consortium
  • Loss of guidance and parenting, if appropriate
  • Loss of financial support
  • Any unreimbursed medical expenses or pain and suffering your loved one had as a result of the accident
  • All funeral and burial expenses
