Watertown Work Injury Attorneys
Have you suffered a serious injury while at work?
If your injury was caused by a third party - someone other than your employer or a co-worker - you have a legal right to recover financial compensation from the person or organization that caused you harm.
These so-called third party claims allow you to recover damages for pain and suffering that are not paid through workers' compensation.

Common Types of Work Injuries
A serious work injury can cause severe disability and even death. Yet, if your job is covered by workers' compensation insurance, you usually cannot file a personal injury claim against your employer, unless you were injured in a motor vehicle accident. There are exceptions to this so you should discuss your injury case with an attorney.
For example, if you walk into a bank, trip over a vacuum cleaner cord and break your hip from the fall, you can sue the bank. If you work for the bank, trip over the same cord and sustain the same injury, you cannot sue.
We focus on representing clients who have suffered a serious work injury...
However, if the person running the vacuum worked for a cleaning service hired by your employer, you could file a claim against the cleaning service.
At D'Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC, our work injury attorneys represent clients who were seriously injured at work by the negligence of someone other than their employer.
If a third party caused your workplace injury, please contact our law firm today for a free initial consultation or case evaluation. We focus on representing clients who have suffered a serious work injury, such as an amputation, brain injury, or spinal cord injury.
Third parties can include:
- The driver of a vehicle that hit you while you were working
- The manufacturer of the machine that caused your work injury
- The owner of a property where your work injury occurred
- Another company hired by your employer. For example, a snow removal service that didn't clear the parking lot well, causing you to fall.
Third party liability issues can become complicated. If you have suffered a work injury, it's wise to consult an attorney to protect your right to recover the full amount of financial compensation to which you are entitled.
