Hiring An Attorney For Third-Party Workers' Compensation Claims

In exchange for providing workers' compensation benefits, Pennsylvania employers are generally protected from being sued by employees for work-related accidents. However, if your work injury was caused by someone other than your employer, you have the right to sue.

At the Law Offices of Katherine L. Niven & Associates, PC, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, we represent workers who are injured in workplace accidents. Founding attorney Katherine L. Niven served as chief counsel for the Pennsylvania Bureau of Workers' Compensation and was a Pennsylvania workers' compensation judge. As a result, she understands Pennsylvania law with respect to third-party liability claims.

What Is A Third Party?

A third party can be anyone who does not work for your employer. Examples of third parties include:

While workers' compensation pays benefits regardless of fault, you have to prove liability on the part of a third party before you can sue for damages. As a result, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after a work accident to collect and preserve evidence of liability.
