Indianapolis Work Injury Attorneys

Assisting Clients with Third-Party Work Accident Claims

If you were injured while at work or while conducting duties within the scope of your work, you may be covered by Indiana workers’ compensation. However, workers’ compensation benefits are rarely enough to make up for the true cost of a workplace injury. Workers’ compensation benefits do not cover anything beyond medical bills, lost wages, and permanent impairment. This means that you will not be able to recover compensation for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of life enjoyment, and more. Additionally, not all workplace accidents are covered by workers’ compensation. If your employer is not liable for the incident, you will likely not be covered.

At Tabor Law Firm, we assist injured workers throughout the state of Indiana with third-party work injury claims. We can help you understand your options and determine if you have grounds for a third-party claim. Our Indianapolis work injury attorneys have more than a century of collective experience. We are prepared to put our extensive knowledge, resources, and skill to work for you.

When Can You Bring a Third-Party Work Injury Claim in Indiana?

In Indiana, like many other states, injured workers are generally covered by workers’ compensation when their employers’ negligence leads to an accident and/or injury. However, there are many instances in which you may wish to bring a third-party work injury claim. One of the most common reasons to bring such a claim is when your employer is not liable but, rather, your injuries were caused by the negligence of a third party.

Examples of this include:

  • A truck driver is hit and injured by another motorist while he is out making a delivery.
  • A postal worker is attacked and bitten by a loose dog while out on her mail route.
  • A construction worker is severely injured after using defective equipment.
  • A roofer is injured because a subcontractor failed to follow property safety protocols.
  • An Uber or Lyft driver is injured in a serious crash caused by another motorist.

These are just some examples of when it may be appropriate to bring a third-party workplace injury claim. You may also wish to bring a third-party claim if workers’ compensation benefits do not cover the full cost of your injuries. Unlike workers’ compensation, there are no limits on how much you can recover in third-party claims. If you or your loved one suffered very serious, catastrophic injuries as a result of a workplace accident, this may be the most beneficial option for you and your family.

Additionally, third-party work injury claims can be used to punish negligent parties. For example, if an electrician was killed due to a defective multimeter, his surviving family members may wish to bring a third-party claim in order to hold the manufacturer of the multimeter responsible and ensure that other workers do not suffer the same fate.
