Tillman & Associates is not like most personal injury lawyers. Most of them compete for every car accident and slip-and-fall they hear about. At Tillman & Associates, personal injury is a component of our workers’ compensation practice. We still handle motor vehicle and premises liability cases, but many of our clients are people who were hurt on the job and have the opportunity to obtain greater compensation than workers’ comp allows, through third-party liability claims.

You may know that workers’ compensation is limited in scope. It can’t make payments to you for emotional pain and suffering, or make the negligent party pay punitive damages. The opportunity arises when a third party (not your employer) shares responsibility for the injury.
Examples Of Third-Party Liability Cases
- A truck driver from one company is hurt by falling objects at the loading area of another company. He may qualify for workers’ comp and file a suit against the company that owns the warehouse.
- An office worker is trapped in a falling elevator car and breaks both legs. She may qualify for workers’ comp and file suit against the building owner or elevator maker.
- A police officer responding to an alarm is attacked by guard dogs. No sign warned her of the danger. She may file a third-party premises liability claim against the property owner.
