What about third party liability?
A workplace injury automatically gives rise to a potential claim under the Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation Law. In these circumstances, having an experienced Massachusetts Workers’ Comp Lawyer is essential.
But what if the injury was caused by somebody else’s fault?
Many times, workplace injuries are nobody’s fault. Other times, they are cause by the negligence of the employer. Under these circumstances, more likely than not, the only party and the exclusive remedy for the injury is a claim against the workers compensation insurer.
However, sometimes, the injury can created liability in a third party. For example, if a certain tool were defective and caused the injury, this could create liability in the manufacturer of the particular tool in the form of a products liability case.
