What is a "third party" premises liability claim in relation to a construction accident in Philadelphia?


A: A third party liability claim is one that holds someone other than your employer responsible for your injuries. If you have been injured in a construction accident in Philadelphia and think someone else may be liable for you injuries, it is highly advised to seek advice from a Pennsylvania injury lawyer to discuss the details of your case. 

Accidents happen all the time on construction sites. They are often chaotic places; the constant action, the machinery, and the general environment make construction sites leading places for workplace injuries.

Let’s say you were on the job working on the road construction on Chestnut St. or repairing a bridge on US 1, when you slipped and fell over some debris. If a subcontractor, property owner, or someone other than your employer was responsible for keeping the grounds safe, than they are considered a third party and you may be able to file a claim against them.

A construction accident in Philadelphia can cause serious injuries and even fatality. Some common types of onsite accidents that occur include the following: 

  • fires;
  • slip and falls;
  • manhole accidents;
  • crane or other heavy machinery accidents;
  • scaffolding accidents;
  • electrical accidents;
  • welding accidents; and
  • trench collapses. 
There may be third party liability factors about your accident that you have not considered. Consult a Pennsylvania injury firm about your incident. Lawyers will be able to:  
  • look over your case;
  • investigate the details; and
  • see if a third party claim is in order. 
Do not settle for only Workers' Compensation benefits after a construction accident injury.
