Third-party work injuries occur at worksites where different companies have employees at the same jobsite—such as a commercial or residential construction site, oil field or warehouse.  Third party work injuries occur when the employee of one company injures the employee of a different company. The “parties” involved are:

  • First Party: The injured employee
  • Second Party: The injured worker’s employer
  • Third Party:  The employee from another company caused the injury

Types of Third-Party Injury Claims We Have Helped Workers With

While no two cases can be handled exactly the same, we have found that most third-party claims stem from the following types of incidents:

  • Struck by a forklift, cherry picker, crane, truck, or other vehicle
  • Electrocutions
  • Defective machinery and equipment incidents
  • Struck by falling objects
  • Falls from ladders, scaffolding, roofs, or other elevated working surface
  • Falls through floor openings that were not properly guarded
  • Slip and falls
  • Injured by machinery
  • Loading dock incidents
  • Crush injuries
  • Loads shifting during transit that were not properly loaded, braced, and secured
  • Fires
  • Gas explosions
  • Oil rig incidents
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals
  • Exposure to toxic fumes or substances

Accidents such as these can cause severe or fatal injuries. We know how this can impact you and your family right now as well as into the future so do not delay in getting one of our third party claims lawyers in San Antonio to help you immediately.
