If you were injured while on the job in New Mexico, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. But you may also be entitled to additional benefits through a personal injury claim if your workplace accident was a result of negligence by your employer, a contractor, a subcontractor, a vendor or an equipment manufacturer associated with your job site.
Are you getting your benefits but they’re not enough to cover your medical bills and living expenses?
Then our Albuquerque work accident lawyers at Will Ferguson & Associates may be able to help you recover additional compensation through a third-party workplace accident claim. Job safety is everyone’s responsibility but accident prevention and the responsibility to eliminate the risk of injury to employees begins with the employer, contractors, subcontractors and vendors running things on the job site.
If you were hurt while on the job in New Mexico, call Will Ferguson & Associates, a law firm that is unmatched in its ability to win verdicts and settlements.

What's a third-party claim? It's a claim made against someone other than your insurer who contributed to your injury. Examples include:
When unsafe scaffolding, broken ladders, electrical outlets, unsafe chemicals, a poorly designed office chair, or other defective or dangerous product or equipment is the culprit behind an injury. This also can include malfunctioning workplace tools, including drills, nail guns or saws.
When you’re injured while driving on the job — as salesperson, delivery person or while performing some other function that requires you to drive as part of your job duties — and someone else's negligence contributes to a crash.
When a poorly maintained property is the cause of your injury, such as a broken walkway, slippery floor, rickety stairs or falling debris, and contributes to your accident.
Insurance bad faith
When an insurance company ignores a claim, refuses to pay or doesn’t pay in full when coverage was in place.[/vc_column_text]
Other kinds of cases could include the negligence of an outside contractor on a job site who contributes to an accident, explosion, fire, flood or other injurious event.
If you were injured on the job, it is extremely important to file third-party workplace accident claims in a timely manner.
