Standing Up for Victims of Third-Party Work Accidents.

Third-Party Work Accidents

When you’re hurt at work, you can at least count on workers’ compensation to cover some lost wages and medical bills. But what happens when someone or something unrelated to your job injures you while you’re working? For instance, if an employee of another trade on a construction site negligently harms you or if a product you use at work malfunctions and causes a serious injury, what next?

Our law firm specializes in this area of law. We can help.

We Dive Headfirst Into Every Case

Our Approach

Our hands-on, “leave no stone unturned” approach yields outlier results–especially on difficult liability cases such as third-party work accidents.

If you’re injured by a third party while working, there are a lot of people involved: you, your employer, the Department of Workers’ Compensation, and the person or business liable for your injuries. We don’t wait for OSHA or the DWC to untangle the mess and get to the bottom of what happened.

Instead, we head straight to the site of your accident ourselves to gather firsthand information. By moving quickly, we ensure that evidence is preserved until we’ve had the chance to examine every inch of the scene with our hired experts.

While on-site, we also access security camera footage and maintenance logs, and speak with available eyewitnesses to create a complete picture of what really happened.

Once we’ve collected all the pieces of evidence, we work on putting the puzzle together. This part of our process usually involves hiring expert witnesses to provide their professional opinions and, when necessary, reconstruct the scene of the accident. Our thorough, proactive approach to case-building gives us the leverage to present an accurate number to your employer, the Department of Workers’ Compensation, and the third party’s insurance company, where applicable.

Insurance companies know that certain law firms get more and more desperate for settlement, the closer they get to trial. Unprepared to take the case the full distance, these firms lose leverage as trial approaches. As a result, their clients do not get full and fair justice for their injuries.

The opposite is true when SHK is on the case. As a trial firm, we hold all the cards as trial draws near. We have done the work. Our experts are retained and ready to testify. We are trial-ready. There is no need – and no pressure – to accept a lowball offer. This gives us the upper hand and leverage to obtain the maximum value prior to trial. If we do settle before trial, we settle for full and fair justice–not discount justice.

The numbers don’t lie: our outstanding jury verdicts have paved a pathway for excellent settlements. And since we are willing to finance a case all the way through trial, you will not have to accept an unfair payout for your injuries.
