Morristown Personal Injury Attorneys Assisting Workers Hurt on the Job

Suffering an injury at work can be devastating. You may be left with large medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Workers’ compensation is designed to provide for you when you cannot work due to an on-the-job injury. However, if a third party is at fault for your losses, it may be also possible to file a separate lawsuit against that party.

At The Terry Law Firm, we have decades of experience handling complex work injury cases, including those involving worker’s compensation and third-party liability. Our Morristown personal injury lawyers represent injured workers throughout East Tennessee. We handle all types of injuries at work, including traumatic brain injuries (TBI), broken bones, crush injuries, neck and back injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns, and amputations.

Types Of Third-Party Cases

When you are injured at work, it may not be immediately clear who is at fault. In many cases, your employer is responsible for the maintenance of a safe and secure working environment. However, when equipment or other materials are defective or were negligently maintained by someone other than your employer, you may have a claim against a manufacturer or other party.

Our firm handles a wide variety of workplace third-party claims, including situations involving:

  • Slip-and-falls due to defective stairs or walkways
  • Trip-and-falls due to improperly installed stairs or walkways
  • Defective machinery
  • Falling objects that fell due to improper installation or defects
  • Electrocutions due to negligently exposed wires
  • Car accidents that occur while driving a company vehicle
