Third Party Claims

It is not uncommon for a person to be injured at work as a result of negligent or careless actions of a party other than his or her employer or co-worker. If this has happened, you have a right to a distinct legal action separate from a workers’ compensation claim.

Since 1993, Sousa & Minogue, LLC, has been tirelessly pursuing third-party liability claims on behalf of seriously injured Connecticut UPS truck drivers, construction workers, police officers, firefighters and other workers.

When You Have Been Injured By A Party Other Than Your Employer, Call Us

Even if your employer has told you the only benefits you may receive are through workers’ compensation, that may not be accurate. If you were on the job and you were injured, there may be another party responsible.

A third-party liability claim is a type of personal injury claim. While filing a workers’ compensation claim will help you to receive medical benefits right away, a third-party claim can allow you to obtain additional financial support for the pain and suffering you have endured.

Waterbury third-party work injury claims attorney Robert C. Sousa has helped hundreds of workers obtain the compensation they need to make the fullest recovery possible from their traumatic work injuries, including heart and hypertension problems, back and neck injuries and knee injuries.

We will work closely with you to learn about your injuries and help you understand your legal rights, including what you may be entitled to according to Connecticut’s workers’ compensation laws. We urge you to consult our lawyers at Sousa & Minogue, LLC, right away.

Our Contingency Fees | Our third-party liability claim cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. If we accept your case, there is no fee unless we recover damages for you.

When I injured my back at work my employer denied that my injury occurred at work. Because of this they would not pay me disability benefits and pay for my doctors’ bills. Since my back injury was so serious that it required surgery I could not work. My not having a pay check placed my family in a bad situation.
Although many of the issues in my case were complex, Attorney Sousa constantly met with me to explain what was going on with my case. He answered all my questions. Without the legal assistance I received from Sousa & Minogue, LLC , I do not know where my family would be today.
