Lombard Injury Attorneys for Third Party Cases
DuPage County Lawyers for Workers' Compensation Third Party Personal Injury Cases
Under Illinois Workers' Compensation law, an employee who is injured on the job is not allowed to sue their employer. Instead, they are limited to what is available through workers' compensation. If a third party is partially at fault for the injury, however, it is possible to bring a lawsuit against that party in addition to the workers' compensation claim. This is known as a third party injury claim. If you or a loved one was injured on the job and there is another party that may share responsibility, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney so you understand your options.

Common Third Party Injury Cases in Illinois
There are numerous scenarios in which a third party may be fully or partially at fault for a workplace injury. Some of the most common include:
- Motor Vehicle Accidents: If you are driving while on the job and are involved in a crash that is the fault of another party, this may constitute a third party injury claim. Auto and truck accidents are especially common among shipping and trucker workers.
- Construction Accidents: On construction sites, there are often several contractors and subcontractors from different companies working together on the same project. If someone from another company causes an accident with injuries, a third party action may be brought against that company.
- Premises Liability Accidents: Slips and falls and other accidents that occur while you are on the premises of another party during the course of employment may be grounds for a third party injury claim.
To be successful in an injury action against a third party, you will need to demonstrate that the accident was at least partially the result of their negligence. A thorough investigation must be conducted to show through evidence and testimony that the other party was at fault.
