Third Party Negligence


Attorney E. Marvin Romero: Experienced Third Party Negligence Attorney

When a worker is injured on the job, they are typically precluded from filing a civil suit in court as workers' compensation insurance is designed as a single-recovery type of system. When injured, workers comp provides medical care payment, disability, lost wages, and so forth. Third party negligence offers workers another opportunity to achieve compensation for their injury, pain, and suffering if a third party is involved in the incident.

Attorney Romero of the Law Office of E. Marvin Romero is an experienced personal injury attorney that focuses on cases involving third party negligence. His firm is dedicated to helping clients in Albuquerque, New Mexico win fair compensation for what they've endured as a result of someone else's careless, reckless, or even illegal actions. If you have a claim involving third party negligence, you can consult with Mr. Romero about how to best pursue your case.

Third Party Negligence Explained

In most cases, workplace injuries involve the employer and employee. As the employee, if you're injured on the job, you file a workers' compensation claim and are generally able to collect benefits until you're able to return to work. Sometimes, however, a third party is involved in the incident. For example, if you are driving a delivery truck for your company and another driver runs a red light and strikes your vehicle, causing you injury, you can file a third party negligence claim.

Filing Third Party Negligence Claims

If you have a case that involves a third party, you need an experienced personal injury attorney who is well-versed in matters of third party negligence. These can be complex cases. Attorney Romero focuses on these types of cases and understands all the technicalities involved in litigating these matters. In some cases, your employer may actually be entitled to some damages from the third party too.

While workers' compensation, a no-fault insurance, will provide compensation for medical expenses and lost wages, it may not compensate for severe types of injuries. If a third party was involved in these injuries, plaintiffs can file a claim for damages. To win this type of lawsuit, you must prove that:

  • You experience a work-related accident
  • You suffered injuries related to the work-related accident
  • A third party owed you a duty of care
  • The third party failed in their duty of care
