Examples of Third-Party Liability in New York

Personal injury claims involving the issue of third-party liability are fairly common after worksite accidents. While an employer’s financial obligation to an injured employee is covered by workers’ compensation, the employee may still be able to collect damages from a negligent third party. For example, someone who is injured by a defective seat belt while driving in the commission of his job duties may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefit as well as compensation from the manufacturer responsible for the defect.

Third-Party Liability in NYC Medical Malpractice Cases

The issue of third-party liability in cases involving medical malpractice is, arguably, more complex. Medical professionals may be held liable for injuries or deaths caused by their patients if:

  • The physician or other healthcare professional failed to properly warn the patient of potential and foreseeable risks associated with a medication.
  • The physician or other healthcare professional was negligent in administering treatment to the patient.

The Brooklyn medical malpractice attorneys of Proner & Proner have a history of successful verdicts and settlements, including several historic resolutions of complex cases. If you or a member of your family has been harmed due to the actions of someone who was under the care of a medical professional at the time, you may be eligible to collect compensation from that medical professional according to the doctrine of third-party liability. Our attorneys in Manhattan, New York, would be pleased to evaluate your personal injury claim to determine whether it would be appropriate to take legal action against a physician, surgeon, nurse, anesthesiologist, pharmacist, or other negligent party.
