What are typical third-party liability claims in Oklahoma?
Third-party liability claims cover a wide range. Some of the most common third-party workplace accidents we handle occur at construction sites, shopping malls and other places where several contractors or companies work at the same time. A truck driver, for example, might be injured by a drunk driver or a texting driver who is not paying attention. The other driver may be liable. A construction worker may be operating a forklift with a manufacturing defect. The company that manufactured the forklift may be liable.
Workers injured in such situations can sustain a wide range of injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Loss of hearing
- Loss of sight
In certain extreme cases, third-party workplace accidents can result in death. If you are dealing with the loss of a loved one because of someone else's negligence, our experienced Oklahoma City personal injury attorneys can help you file a wrongful death lawsuit and explore other legal options available to you.
