How do I Pursue Financial Compensation?

When a person becomes injured at the expense of a negligent party, they are able to pursue legal action in an effort to recover compensation. This provides coverage for the damages that stem from the incident. To do so, the injured party must file a personal injury claim. This process requires them to gather evidence that proves negligence took place, thus causing the accident and their injuries. Evidence to back up a claim can include medical documentation of the injuries, pictures of the hazard that caused the injuries, security footage of the accident, witnesses of the incident, etc.

What is a Third-Party Lawsuit?

After a workplace accident occurs, employees usually do not want to sue their employer. This is because it can make for an uncomfortable work environment. Instead, they may receive workers’ compensation. However, it is also possible to sue a third-party if they were responsible for causing this accident. In cases of construction accidents, this may be a negligent equipment manufacturer, leasing agent, architect, designer, property owner, general contractor, and more.
