What is a third party claim?

Missouri workers often face risks of injury while on the job. These risks can stem from a number of different factors, and can even be caused by a third party. We here at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., wish to help you understand how to handle a situation in which a third party was involved or responsible for your injury.

Additional damages can sometimes be collected from third parties if the injury you received is due in part to their actions, negligence, or involvement. For example, the company that produced a faulty piece of equipment could be considered a third party in the event that you are hurt while operating that equipment. This is less complicated in cases where you are following the guidelines and your employer has made sure to set them properly, where it is clear that the faulty equipment is the cause of the injury.

Property owners may also sometimes be involved in a third party claim. For example, if you get bitten by a dog on someone else’s property or slip and fall in a parking lot, the owner of those locations may be held responsible. Injuries that happen on construction sites can also potentially involve a third party claim, especially if inadequate training or safety measures were provided on the site.

Things can get a bit more complicated when a third party gets involved in an injury claim. To limit any potential confusion and aid in your understanding of these claims, you may wish to follow the link to our web page on third party claims, where you can find more information.
