Proven Assistance With 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 you have suffered injuries because of malfunctioning equipment, chemical burns, toxic chemical inhalation, being hit by another driver while driving to work or working with dangerous equipment on a construction site, 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.
If 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 suffered injuries on the job because of another party, that party will be held responsible for your injuries.
A third-party liability claim is a type of personal injury claim. While filing a workers’ compensation claim will help you 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.
Our work injury claims attorney Robert C. Sousa has helped hundreds of workers, including delivery drivers and construction 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 third-party liability claim cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. If we accept your case, we do not charge attorneys’ fees unless we recover damages for you in a settlement or verdict. Studies show that injured people receive more compensation when they work with an attorney to pursue their claim.
