Queens Third Party Negligence Attorney
Representing clients injured by third parties
Being injured on the job can take its toll. Depending on the injury, you could be out of work for a long time or indefinitely. The injury can impact your quality of life and stop you from doing the simplest of tasks. Covered employees who are injured on the job can file a workers’ compensation claim helping them recover and providing the support they deserve on their road to recovery or through a permanent disability. As you may have learned on our website, the deal struck by workers’ compensation law is that you cannot sue your employer directly for your accident, illness or condition. However, a lawsuit may follow your compensation claim – sometimes, an injury or illness is the fault of a third party or a person who ‘owes no duty’ to the liable employer in your compensation claim. If you were injured at work and it was caused by the negligence of a party that has no affiliation with your employer, you may need to consider your legal options. The Law Offices of George Poulos is ready to protect your interests when taking legal action against another party for work-related injuries. If you need effective legal support, contact our firm for a consultation.
Workers’ compensation liens
If you take legal action against a negligent third party after or while receiving medical care and financial support for lost wages, you may be responsible for the reimbursement of said support. The insurance provider may assert a lien against any future reward to recover money spent on your care.
