In Subscriber and Non-Subscriber Claims, Supplemental Third-Party Lawsuits also Help Compensate Family Members of Deceased Employees
There is another practical avenue of receiving fair injury compensation aside from workers’ comp. The family members of deceased employees can file a suit against someone other than the subscribing employer – known as a third-party – if an investigation proves that others were involved in the accident that led to the death of your loved one.
Third-party claims and lawsuits arise when someone other than the employer may have done something negligent to cause your family member’s fatal injury. If a faulty piece of machinery caused the death, then the manufacturer may be held liable through a defective product lawsuit. If the owner of the property did not provide safe working conditions, then he or she could be held accountable. If a contractor or another employee negligently caused the injury, then they could be held accountable as well. These are the most common examples but there are others.

In workers’ comp cases, surviving family members can sue the responsible party or parties, but not the subscribing employer. Experience and the ability to properly investigate not only the accident scene but the roles these third parties played in the fatal construction accident are required in order to determine all parties responsible and make them pay for the injuries they caused. And in non-subscriber claims, third party lawsuits are a rightful measure that may be open to the surviving family members. A skillful wrongful death lawyer can devise a plan of attack that offer the best opportunity to secure compensation in a complex Texas work-related claim when more than one party is found to be liable.
