No two workplace accidents are the same. That's why the Law Offices of Gene S. Hagood take a unique approach toward each workplace injury case they handle.

This scenario - known as third-party workplace accidents - is more common than many people might realize.

Examples of Third Party Negligence

A typical third-party case might involve an employee who is driving on the road and who is injured because of another driver's negligence. Another case might involve a worker who is injured in a construction accident as a result of improper maintenance of equipment that is maintained by an outside company. In either case, the worker may be able to make a third-party liability claim.

Construction sites are among the most common places for third-party liability because they often include several subcontractors and other third parties who may be responsible for accident injuries. A claim could be filed against a product manufacturer, building engineer, or delivery truck driver.

Some of the most common causes of workplace accidents include:

  • Unmarked hazards
  • Unsafe working conditions
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Electric shocks
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Repetitive stress injury
