Third Party Workers Comp Claims

When Someone Other Than Your Employer Is Responsible for Your Construction Accident

Your recovery under the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act may only be the beginning of your right to compensation. If you or a loved one sustained an on the job construction injury as the result of the negligence of a third party, someone other than your employer, you may have a claim for compensation, including wrongful death. The Strom Law Firm can help with third party workers comp claims.

Construction Accidents That May Arise From Third-Party Negligence include:

  • Collapses or falls including scaffold collapses, ladder falls and crane collapses
  • Falling materials or debris
  • Faulty or unsafe equipment
  • Defective tools
  • Electrocutions
  • Chemical explosions
  • Forklift accidents

When an accident arises from insufficient safety measures, the owners, architects, general and subcontractors and equipment manufacturers can all be held accountable.

Contractor Liability for Safety Measures

General and subcontractors are also obligated to warn of the potential hazards on the construction site, coordinate safety policies, and ensure that those specifications are followed. Manufacturers of construction equipment are accountable for designing as well as maintaining safe products. Many construction accidents occur because of defective or dangerous products. When the proper safety methods are not followed, the possibility of injury and death increases exponentially.

Establishing Liability on a Third Party

For third-party liability claims, injured workers need to prove that a third party was negligent.

This means you have to show:

  • An accident took place;
  • The third-party unreasonably caused the accident, or failed to take actions that led to the accident;
  • That your injuries were caused by the accident;
  • Your injuries were foreseeable.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…
Professional Representation, Satisfying Legal Outcome!
My wife and I retained Bakari Sellers to represent our son in a case in Richland County. We found Mr. Sellers, his assistant Stephanie, and the rest of the staff at Strom, extremely courteous and professional. We really appreciated Mr. Sellers’ straightforward and honest approach. We believe this is a very competent law firm, and are satisfied with the legal outcome they achieved. We would highly recommend them!

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
