Third-Party Liability For Workplace Accidents
In North Carolina, you can’t sue your employer, even if a co-worker or supervisor caused your injury. However, you can sue other individuals or entities that are not in your chain of employment.
Civil trial attorney Luke Baker can handle your workers’ comp claim and represent you in any third-party lawsuits. He has represented construction workers, commercial drivers, sales personnel and other employees who were injured through the negligence of third parties:
- Other subcontractors
- Property owners
- Utility companies
- Automobile drivers
- Equipment manufacturers
We Can Help If You Were Injured On The Job
A personal injury suit provides damages not available under workers’ compensation, such as pain and suffering. This can add to your total compensation, and your ability to recover from the hardships of a serious work injury.
