Third-Party Liability Claims

Capable Lawyers Represent You in Third-Party Claims

Skilled attorneys help you recover damages not covered by workers’ compensation in Peoria & Springfield, IL

Some injuries that occur on the job are not covered under Illinois workers’ compensation law. And even if they are, many workers’ comp settlements are insufficient to cover medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitation, and pain and suffering. While you cannot sue your employer for work-related injuries, you may seek damages from third parties who may share the blame for an accident or exposure to hazardous materials. If this situation applies to you, speak with the talented workers’ comp lawyers at Boshardy Law Office, P.C. in Springfield. Together, we can explore your options for filing third-party liability claims after an injury leaves you unable to work.

Common claims in third-party lawsuits

You may be able to seek both workers’ compensation benefits and damages from an individual or organization other than your employer. The most common scenarios involve the following:

  • Car accidents. Whether you’re a commercial driver or were simply asked to pick up some supplies for the office, you may qualify for compensation if you were injured in a work-related car accident. In most cases, the lawsuit would target the driver responsible for your personal injuries.
  • Construction accidents. A construction site can be a dangerous place. If you are injured because of a poorly marked jobsite or the unsafe work practices of another contractor, you may be able to sue the property owner or contractor for damages
  • Product liability. If your job requires you to work with dangerous equipment and you are injured because the equipment malfunctioned, you may have a case against the manufacturer.
