Accidents at work happen from time to time, when such work accidents do occur, a worker is entitled to filing for a benefit at the place of work if the state law is in support of it in the state of such accident, so that such work can be able to offset extra medical treatment bills, lost wages as a result of injuries inflicted from such accident since he/she might be well disposed to work, and if a third party was involved it is liable of been filed for a remuneration to cater for the injury inflicted from such work accidents. Cases wherein a third party can be a liable target from such work accidents include the following:

i.    At factories

A factory usually have different compartment where work can be done hence it’s a very busy place, hence injuries as a result of accidents can frequently happen, so if a worker is inflicted with injuries from the operation of a machine, the manufacturer or company responsible for the maintenance and repairs of the machines may become liable to some claim from the claimant

ii.    At construction sites

For cases of slip and fall in a store or business enterprise, it is worth noting that the businesses that welcome the public onto their premises and environs have a legal duty to keep them reasonably safe, hence if one slip and falls in a store there might be a legally valid claim against that enterprise. There are a series of reasons that might cause a slip and a fall accident in a store; it might be the poor lighting system, haphazardly placement of objects, accumulated dirty by other customers going in and coming out of the store, whatever reason the legal liability depends greatly on whether there was a conspicuous notice of the unsafe conditions and if Isa blatant refusal to fix the issue that might cause an accident.

The liable party in a case of a work accident can be a second or third party involved, whatever the party a claimant files a lawsuit so as to be compensated for loses resulting from such work accident.
