Third-Party Negligence Claims

Our Sacramento Attorneys Go Beyond Worker's Compensation

After a job-related injury, victims typically only look to worker's compensation to recover the money they need. However, at the law offices of Smolich & Smolich, experience has taught us that this can be just one of multiple sources of financial recovery. Having handled these cases for more than four decades, our Sacramento workers' compensation lawyers understand the value of carefully reviewing all possible legal options in order to maximize your recovery after a workplace accident.

The worker's compensation system is designed to cover medical costs associated with your workplace injury as well as the majority of lost income. However, it does have its limits. For example, it does not allow you to obtain compensation for pain and suffering. That is why it is important to consider other possible sources of recovery, such as third-party negligence claims.

When am I Able to File a Third-Party Negligence Claim?

Third-party negligence claims, which are actually personal injury claims, can be filed when a party other than the victim's employer was responsible for the workplace accident. Our Sacramento personal injury attorneys have in-depth experience handling these types of claims. We will thoroughly investigate the situation, take great care to determine who exactly was responsible for your injuries and work to hold them financially responsible.

For example, a third-party negligence claim could be brought against:

  • A product manufacturer for a defective piece of work equipment
  • A driver who caused a motor vehicle accident while the victim was on the job
  • Other businesses or property owners where workers are at while performing their job functions

You Don't Pay Unless We Recover Compensation

If you believe that you may have a third-party negligence claim, the time to act is now. When you choose our firm to handle your case, rest assured that you are in capable hands. In fact, you will not have to pay a penny unless we recover compensation for your injuries.

  • Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!!

    “Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!! Rob Smolich took my case himself and was so helpful in every step of the way. I cant say anything negative about Smolich & Smolich. I had a lawyer before him and he was way more personable. His office took all the stress off my back and made me feel at ease during the time period of waiting. Have nothing but good things to say about this company. They are completely professional!!!!”

  • They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!

    “Thank you so much for your help. I was denied twice by social security disability. They are the most diligent and wonderfully. Yes it takes a while to get a hearing. If it wasn't for the great staff and attorneys here, I would have never been approved for disability. It was the best Christmas gift i received. They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!”

  • You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process.

    “I sincerely apologize for the delay! I truly thought I had already sent this off to almost 3 months ago! Thank goodness I had someone helping me clean and organize the apartment last week. She found your letter behind my bookcase. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your support and dedication throughout my case. You were a true blessing to me. You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process. Just the fact that you returned a call so promptly was a very big deal to me. It let me know that I mattered to you, Sarah, and the firm. Thanks to the two of you I am finally settled in my own apartment and my mom was able to finally retire. So again, thank you from the depths of my heart for everything that you personally and your firm have done for me. You were true angels in my tie of need.”
