Representing Clients In Third-Party Claims
Personal injury claims can be complex and intricate. A vital component of any personal injury case is identifying who is responsible for the injuries or death. This could be more difficult depending on the facts of the case. In order to make sure you maximize the compensation you receive, it is important to work with a qualified, experienced personal injury attorney who understands liability law.
Harpold Thomas, PC, is a law firm dedicated to representing the interests of injured victims. We help people who are personally injured and family members who have lost loved ones due to wrongful death. We are thorough and detailed and will work to ensure all theories of recovery are explored. We are based in Kent, Washington, and our services span across Seattle, South King County and North Pierce County.
Third-party claims often arise in the context of workplace injuries where clients have workers’ compensation claims and assert a personal injury lawsuit (third-party suit) against another at-fault party. We have experience handling cases involving:
- Construction sites: Construction workers who are injured can file workers’ compensation claims and get benefits for lost wages, medical expenses and more. Injuries could be caused by a machine malfunction, crane collapse, lack of safety devices, improper safety training or lack of personal protective equipment. We can help the worker file a third-party claim against the other at-fault party for negligence or defective products.
- Professional drivers: When commercial truck drivers, delivery drivers or others who drive for a living are involved in motor vehicle accidents, they are eligible for workers’ compensation. In addition, they may be able to recover from other third parties such as the other driver or the government if there was defective road design or maintenance.
