Defective Product or Negligent Party Outside of Work Responsible for Your On-the-Job Injury? Call Us!
Many factors contribute to job accident injuries and occupational diseases. At The Law Offices of Deborah G. Kohl, our seasoned Workers' Compensation attorneys have seen every type of workplace accident injury:
- salesperson hurt by distracted driver in a work-related car accident
- carpenter lacerated by malfunctioning table saw
- utility worker electrocuted by faulty circuit spark
- crane operator injured by defective heavy equipment manufacturer
- chef with third-degree burn injuries due to stove gas line defects
- nurse injured by faulty syringe needle stick
In each case, another person or company unaffiliated with your employer is partially liable for your job injury, and part of our job as your Workers' Comp attorney is to go after every party responsible for your job-related injury. We will investigate every detail of your workplace accident injury or illness, and prepare a powerful third party claim case on your behalf.
A workplace accident can change your life in an instant and have a significant impact on your family. The expenses for treating your injury can become overwhelming very quickly. In the meantime, there is less money coming in because you can't work. It becomes hard for families to make ends meet during this difficult time.
Call a Trusted, Tireless RI or MA Workers' Comp Injury Lawyer to Pursue Every Responsible Third-Party
Our firm fights to make sure injured workers get the workers' compensation benefits they deserve. Our attorneys can help you navigate the claims process every step of the way. We can help you file an initial claim for benefits, negotiated with insurance companies on your behalf and aggressively appeal decisions to deny your claim.
We also identify third parties whose negligence led to the accident that caused your injury. Workers' compensation benefits can cover the costs of your medical treatment and partial wages while you can't work. We can take legal action against the third party that caused your accident and seek other damages, such as pain and suffering.
An Experience Law Firm That Knows How To Get Results
Pursuing a third-party claim can be complicated. The third party will likely deny any responsibility. And the insurance company will likely take their side. That's why you need an experienced law firm with a long record of results. We know how to build strong cases that hold negligent third parties accountable and help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Our legal team can investigate your workplace accident to find out what really happened. We know where to look for evidence, and examine all related documents such as accident reports and medical records. In addition, we identify witnesses to the accident and interview them ourselves. If needed, we consult with experts.
When insurance companies see that we have built a convincing case and are ready to move forward, they are often willing to negotiate a settlement. But we are not interested in low-ball offers that don't meet your needs. If the insurance company won't negotiate a settlement that works for you, our skilled litigators are ready to fight for you in court.
If you suffered a job injury in which negligent non-work people or defective products were involved, call the Law Offices of Deborah G.

Our workers' compensation attorneys help injured workers throughout the Providence, Fall River, Foxborough and Newport area. Every conversation is private and there is no obligation.
