Third-Party Liability For Workplace Injuries
Under Massachusetts law, workers, compensation is the “exclusive remedy” for job-related injuries. This means that your employer must provide medical wage loss benefits without regard to fault, but in turn you cannot sue your employer or co-worker.
However, you may be able to sue third parties who are responsible to your work-related injury. That is where personal injury lawyer John M. Wozniak, Esq., and his twenty-plus years of experience come in. He acts swiftly to identify liability parties outside of the chain employment and establish insurance coverage. For example, a property owner, subcontractor, or a manufacturer might be held responsible for causing your work-related injury.
Past Representation In Workers’ Comp Matters
We have distinguished a record of results in personal injury litigation, including verdicts and settlements in work injury cases. For example, The Wozniak Law Group, P.C., represented a Teamster who suffered aggravation of an existing hernia in a pallet jack accident at a work site. We settled on the first day of trial for $265,000, an indication of the strength of the case we prepared.
We have represented firefighters, police officers, EMTs, nurses, truck drivers, factory workers and laborers, construction workers and tradesmen, and people in a wide range of occupations. Our legal team handles all types of work injuries, including:
- Stairway falls and slip-and-falls
- Machinery and equipment accidents
- Falls from heights
- Work-related auto accidents
- Fires and explosions
- Electric shock
In addition to traumatic accidents at work, we have obtained recovers for degenerative conditions such as carpel tunnel syndrome and workplace exposures to toxic substances.
