Third-Party Claims in Elmhurst
In certain cases, workers’ compensation benefits do not cover the cost of an injury in its entirety. When this happens, it is in your best interests to retain the services of an experienced Elmhurst personal injury attorney who can work to file a third-party claim on your behalf. Essentially, a third-party claim is when our firm sues the liable third party who is not your employer to recover the compensation you need. To win these claims, we will have to prove that a liable third party, such as an independent contractor, property owner, or product manufacturer/designer was directly responsible for the injuries you sustained in your accident. That being said, you must ensure that you act swiftly, as the statute of limitations for third-party claims in New York State is, generally, three years, giving you three years from the date of your accident to sue.
