Third Party Liability and Related Civil Claims
Workers injured on the job are generally limited to recovering for their injuries through the workers' compensation system. Commonly, however, a worker's injuries are caused by a non-employer third party. In such cases, injured employees and workers can bring a civil lawsuit to recover injuries, often resulting in a greater recovery. See our page on how workers comp lawyers in Sacramento can help file claims.
For example, employees are often injured when their work equipment malfunctions or fails to work due to a design or manufacturing defect. In these instances, injured employees may bring a products liability claim against the manufacturer. In addition, employees who drive as part of their work duties and are injured in a Sacramento auto accident caused by another driver may be able to recover damages from the driver or the driver's car insurance provider. A Sacramento workers' compensation attorney will work together to handle every aspect of your case, including any third party liability and related civil claims.
