General Contractor And Subcontractor Third-Party Negligence Liability Actions

Worcester, Boston, Fitchburg Injury Lawyers For Holding General Contractors And Subcontractors Liable In Third-Party Negligence Actions

When a general contractor, subcontractor or an employee of a temporary agency is injured at a job site and the injuries are caused by the negligence of another subcontractor (or that other subcontractor’s employees), then the injured worker can bring a third-party negligence claim or lawsuit against the other party.

In the above scenario, the injured workers’ employer (i.e., the general contractor, the subcontractor or the temporary agency he or she works for) would provide workers’ compensation benefits via their insurer, while the other negligent party would be liable for all negligent damages, which include pain and suffering. See Third-Party Liability for additional information and examples.
