Third-Party Liability

Third-Party Negligence and Tort Claims

Oftentimes, it is not difficult to identify the individual or business that holds primary responsibility for a serious accident. However, some accident cases involve layers of responsibility that may not be readily apparent to the untrained eye. The experienced attorney recognizes these opportunities to maximize client compensation and uses that experience to make the most of them.

Our First Concern is Your Recovery

At Becker, French and Durkin we put more than 60 years of combined legal experience to work for our clients and offer effective legal representation in a wide range of personal injury concerns. Because of this experience and broad background, our attorneys are quickly able to identify cases of third-party liability and provide the kind of knowledge and ability needed to establish these claims in court.

Examples of cases involving third-party liability include:

  • A bar, restaurant, or social host that knowingly serves alcohol to an underage person may be held liable if that person later causes injuries or death to another person as a result of their intoxication.
  • A workplace accident caused by someone other than your employer or a co-worker, or work accidents caused by a defective or dangerous piece of equipment or machinery.
  • Someone drops a bottle of milk in a grocery store and does nothing about it. This creates a hazardous situation; another customer subsequently slips and injures themselves. Both the individual who created the situation and the store owner may be held liable.
  • When someone is injured in an on-the-job auto accident, their employer can be held liable for damages as well the driver who caused the accident.
