California Work Injury Lawyer

Typically, when people talk about a work-related injury, they seek workers’ compensation benefits. However, there are many situations when a personal injury claim can be filed for negligence that resulted in the injury – this is called a third party liability claim.

Third Party Liability In Work-Related Injuries

If you suffer a work-related injury due to the negligence of someone other than your employer, but was also no fault of your own, you may be able to file a claim against the third party. This differs from workers’ compensation in that you can recover compensation for pain & suffering and all financial losses. Workers’ compensation only allows for compensation for medical bills and lost wages.

Typical Work Injuries

  • Construction Site Accidents (slip and falls, defective products)
  • Slip and Fall Accidents (food servers, caregivers)
  • Back Injuries, Overexertion (caregivers, medical professionals)
  • Head Trauma (slip and fall accidents, falling objects)

Unless you are well versed in California employment and injury law, the whole process can be daunting. Torem & Associates handles these types of work injury claims all the time.
