Third-Party Liability Claims

Oakland Third-Party Liability Attorneys

When someone is hurt at work they typically qualify for workers’ compensation to help pay for medical treatment and other expenses. However, if someone’s injuries are the result of neglect or the careless actions of another, they may also be able to pursue what’s known as a third-party liability claim for additional financial compensation. If you drive a company vehicle and get in a car accident, a faulty auto part causes your work vehicle to crash, or negligence on a job site results in a slip and fall, Oakland third party liability attorney David G. Smith can help you seek compensation through a third party liability lawsuit; call 510-893-3741 or e-mail us today.
