Third-Party Lawsuits for Work-Related Injuries

workplaceaccidentsWorkers’ compensation is an invaluable safety net, but it may not fully cover the losses if you or your family member was seriously injured on the job.

Iowa Work Injury Attorneys for Third-Party Liability

We know how to investigate workplace accidents to identify other parties who may be liable for damages such as:

  • Subcontractors on the same work site
  • Manufacturers or servicers of machinery and equipment
  • Property owners who created a safety hazard
  • Motorists who caused an on-the-job auto accident

Trial lawyer Michael K. Bush can represent construction workers, truck drivers, factory employees, industrial plant workers and anyone injured on the job through a third party’s negligence or reckless disregard for safety.

โ€” He won substantial compensation for brain damage and other massive injuries suffered by a plumber who was buried alive in a trench cave-in through a subcontractor’s negligence.

โ€” He recovered damages for an 18-year-old man who lost an arm in a conveyor belt when a temp agency put him on the line without any training.

โ€” He successfully sued a forklift manufacturer when a worker was maimed by an exploding battery.

Beyond Employer Benefits: Getting Full Value for Your Injuries

A personal injury lawsuit from a skilled workers compensation attorney allows for monetary damages not available through a straight workers’ comp claim such as pain and suffering. You can recover the full measure of lost wages and future earnings whereas wage loss is capped under workers’ compensation. Third-party personal injury claims can enhance employer-paid settlements for disability, disfigurement or death.

We have handled catastrophic injuries and wrongful death, but we welcome any work injury case with a third-party angle. Call (563) 344-4900 toll free in Iowa or Illinois, or contact us online. We offer a free consultation, including home or hospital visits. There are no attorney fees unless we recover compensation.
