Third Party Claims From On The Job Injuries
On-the-job injuries can involve more than just a claim for workers’ compensation benefits from the injured worker’s employer. The negligence of employees of a third party, such as another subcontractor, can be a cause of the worker’s injury. The injured worker has the right to pursue a claim against the negligent third party. The South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act does not provide compensation for pain and suffering or punitive damages. However, an injured worker pursuing a claim against a negligent third party can pursue compensation for pain and suffering and other types of damages, including punitive damages. The attorneys at Callihan & Syracuse have extensive experience in handling both workers’ compensation and third party claims and will take the time to explore any and all possibilities of a third party claim.
Falls on another’s property can result in severe physical injuries, emotional distress, loss of wages and permanent disability. Unfortunately, the law in South Carolina favors property owners and the burden of proof upon an injured victim has become increasingly heavy. However, the attorneys at Callihan & Syracuse have had success in fighting the insurance company’s initial denial of the claim. We would be happy to discuss the facts of your case and how they apply to existing law in an effort to obtain a favorable result for you.
Individuals, particularly children, bitten by dogs often have permanent physical and emotional injuries. Under South Carolina law, a dog owner is liable for injuries suffered by a person who is bitten in a public place or is lawfully in a private place, including the dog owner’s residence. The attorneys at Callihan & Syracuse have had extensive experience representing people bitten by dogs and can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Injuries caused by the negligence of another that result in the death of a loved one are particularly difficult for families of the deceased. There are time limitations that apply and the time limits vary depending upon whether a public or private entity or person caused the death of your loved one. There are also rules that apply regarding who may pursue a wrongful death action against a negligent party and who may receive the proceeds of a wrongful death settlement or jury verdict. We will take the time to thoroughly discuss all aspects of your loved one’s death.”
