Injured by a 3rd party while at work? Let us help you navigate this claim and make sure you are fully represented and get the protection you need.

A third-party claim is a claim against a person or entity (third-party), other than your employer, who is at fault for an injury you suffered while at work. In these cases, the injured worker may make a claim against the person who caused their injury in addition to their workers’ compensation claim.

The most common type of third-party case is an automobile accident which occurs while the injured worker is on the job and which is caused by another driver. The third-party is the driver who caused the accident and the injured worker may make a claim against the other driver in addition to their workers’ compensation claim. Another common scenario where there may be a third-party claim is where a third-party’s property is unsafe or dangerous and causes an injury to you while you are on the job.

Third-party claims are extremely complex because they involve multiple parties and different legal standards. You should contact the experienced attorneys at Adams, Hill & Hess immediately if you have been involved in a work injury and you believe that you may have a third-party claim as well. We can help you determine if you have a third-party claim and take action to protect your interests for both your third-party claim and your workers’ compensation claim.

I had the pleasure and privilege of working with Mr. Adam Reed. He and (Adams/Hill/Hess) were my first attorney/law firm to ever hire or work with.I worked with Adam for approximately 3 yrs, working through my workers comp injury case. It wasn’t easy to deal with the insurance companies or doctors along the way nor all the other issues that did arise from time to time.However, Mr. Reed did an excellent job on my case, he was very personable, always called to keep me apprised of anything changing.
Response from the owner: We're very pleased to hear that our firm was able to help you through what is often a long and complicated process. Thank you for trusting us and sharing your experience with our firm.
