Maximizing Your Compensation. Protecting Your Interests.

If you were injured on the job and received workers’ compensation benefits, you are not entitled to file a lawsuit against the employer for negligence. In order to receive the benefit of workers’ comp payments, workers agree not to seek recourse against their employer in case of an accident.

However, if your work injury was caused by a third-party actor or entity who is not your employer, you may be able to maximize your compensation by filing a third-party claim with the assistance of a skilled personal injury lawyer. At AlpernSchubert, P.C., we understand that no two injury cases are similar. That’s why we study and evaluate every detail surrounding your injury so we can represent your interests to the fullest.

Seeking Compensation For Third-Party Liability

A work injury victim may recover additional compensation due to third-party liability, that is, because of the negligent actions or omissions of another individual or entity. After learning the facts and circumstances of your injury, we will discuss your rights in-depth and determine whether you may be able to pursue a third-party liability lawsuit against the negligent parties.

You may be able to file a third-party liability lawsuit if your accident was the fault of another entity or individual different from your employer. Contractors, equipment manufacturers and other individuals may have created the unsafe conditions that led to your accident.

The skilled attorneys of AlpernSchubert, P.C., have more than 100 years of combined experience helping injury victims seek the justice and financial compensation they deserve. We are well-positioned to help you build a solid case and assert your rights. Discuss your alternatives today by contacting us for a free consultation.
