Third Party Liability
One of the first steps in recovering damages for an accident-related injury is identifying the person or entity at fault. Sometimes this is simple. In other situations, however, the picture is less clear.
Take a car accident, for example. Driver A is injured when rear-ended by Driver B while stopped at a traffic light. Driver B may very well be liable for Driver A's injuries, not to mention any lost wages and other related damages. If the accident is caused or made worse by defective equipment - say, brake failure or faulty seatbelts - the equipment manufacturer may also be liable. Similarly, in a construction or other work-related accident, defective equipment or a coworker's mistake may be as much to blame for an injury as the company's negligence. In those situations, the injured person may be able to recover damages from responsible third parties.
In many cases, there is more than one liable party. It is important to identify all of the parties who may be liable for an accident in order to maximize the injured person's compensation. An experienced, competent attorney with a solid background in personal injury law is essential to this process.
