Compensation for Workplace Accidents
A workplace accident can impact every area of your life. At Morris & Player PLLC in Louisville, we’re here to help you through this difficult time.
If you were injured on the job in Kentucky, you will probably be covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. What you may not realize is that you retain the right to sue any third parties that may be found liable for causing the accident or contributing to your injuries. This is where our law firm comes in.
Who May Be Found Liable for Your Accident?
Industrial accidents and other work-related injuries seldom occur without cause. In many cases, more than one negligent party can be found at fault. Negligence may be assigned to:
- The manufacturer of a dangerous or defective product
- The property owner
- The installer of industrial equipment
- A negligent co-worker or subcontractor working on the job site
Whether you were injured on a construction site or in an office, all negligent parties that caused or contributed to your injury should be held accountable. Workplace injury claims are often the result of slips and falls, toxic exposure, repetitive motion injuries, motor vehicle accidents and industrial equipment accidents.
Why File a Third-Party Lawsuit?
A third-party lawsuit gives you the right to seek damages for pain and suffering, and ongoing expenses for a lifetime of care if you suffered a serious or catastrophic injury.
We are not a workers’ compensation law firm. If we accept your third-party case and you are not yet working with a workers’ compensation lawyer to help you get insurance benefits, we will be happy to help you find a workers’ compensation lawyer in your area.
Our attorneys offer free case evaluations and represent clients in third-party liability cases on a contingency fee basis. That means there are no upfront costs or attorneys’ fees — our firm is paid out of the final settlement or jury verdict.
Injury claims involving industrial equipment can be incredibly complex matters, oftentimes requiring a team of attorneys, all working together to ensure the client’s best interests are protected. The lawyers at Morris & Player PLLC are honored when they receive an attorney referral in these types of cases and work tirelessly to get results that matter.
