Atlanta Lawyers Helping People Injured At Work
Americans spend a significant portion of their time at their place of employment, with even part-time workers spending up to 30 or more hours per week at their job. As a result, it should come as no surprise that many serious personal injury cases are due to on-the-job injuries.

Third-Party Liability Claims: Experienced Atlanta, Georgia, Attorneys
Most people believe that workers’ compensation benefits are the only funds available to someone injured at work, such as workers injured in construction accidents. This is not true. Workers’ compensation does cover certain medical bills and provides money while you are unable to work, but often these awards do not reflect the true costs of a person’s injuries.
If another party’s negligence contributed to your injuries, you might be entitled to additional benefits by filing a third-party liability claim. For example, if a truck driver is injured while making a delivery and the accident was another driver’s fault, he might be entitled to additional compensation from the other driver or his or her insurance company.
Any recovery would be in addition to the workers’ compensation benefits the truck driver receives. Common third-party claims are made against or result from:
- Other individuals
- Manufacturers of defective products
- Negligent drivers
- Negligent supervisors
- Failure to comply with safety regulations (factories and warehouses)
It is important to act quickly since there is a statute of limitations on personal injury claims. We can get started immediately investigating the cause of your injuries and working toward getting you the money you truly deserve.
