Skilled North Dakota Workplace Injury Lawyers Fight for Your Rights
Advocating for ND workers and site visitors of North Dakota
Injuries resulting from a workplace accident are generally covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. However, if your injuries were caused by a negligent third party, you may also be entitled to additional compensation through a personal injury claim. An experienced attorney can help you determine what type of claim is right for your situation.
At Larson Law Firm P.C., our skilled North Dakota workplace injury lawyers leverage more than 35 years of legal experience to help clients who have been injured on the job. We can provide you with the information and representation you need to feel confident in the decisions you make about your case. Together, we will work toward getting you the compensation you need, especially if your injury prevents you from returning to work.
Professional representation for third party workplace injuries
When someone other than your employer or coworker causes injury to you within the workplace, it is called third party liability. Under certain circumstances, that party may be held accountable through a personal injury action. For example, if you drive a vehicle as part of your job and another driver causes you injury by crashing into the car, you may have a separate claim against the negligent driver for damages in addition to your workers’ compensation benefits. We represent workers, site visitors and passers-by who have sustained injuries because of:
- Open power lines
- Poor safety measures
- Defective machinery and power tools
- Unsafe scaffolding and ladders
- Falling objects
- Toxic chemical exposure and inhalation
- Unstable walkways
- Improperly marked construction zones and areas
We investigate the cause of your injuries and assist you in seeking fair and just compensation from all responsible parties. Our team strategically works to negotiate an adequate settlement, but we are also prepared to aggressively litigate the matter should it become necessary to take your case to court. Whether you are hurt in an office, on a construction site, or on a farm, or on any worksite, our knowledgeable North Dakota workplace injury attorneys can guide you through the complexities of a third-party claim.
The difference between workers’ compensation and personal injury
Workers’ compensation solely covers your medical bills and lost wages resulting from your work injury. With a personal injury claim, you can also recover medical expenses and lost income. Additionally, a personal injury claim allows you to pursue damages for your pain and suffering. A personal injury damage award may also include punitive damages, which are meant to punish the responsible party for the negligent actions.
When personal injury and workers’ compensation claims overlap, you need to seek advice from an experienced North Dakota personal injury lawyer who handles cases in this area. Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer may be entitled to some of the compensation you receive through a personal injury action.
Our legal team works hard to secure the full and fair compensation you deserve after an injury at work. Our attorneys know how to handle situations where workers’ compensation and personal injury claims overlap.
