What If Someone Else Shares The Blame For Your Work Accident?
When you get hurt on the job, there may be other parties besides your employer that are responsible for your injury. Fortunately, The Law Offices of Samuel Dagan can help you identify who should be held accountable for your medical and property damages.
Attorney Samuel Dagan has successfully handled crossover cases or cases that involve both personal injury as well as workers’ compensation claims. He is known in the legal industry as one of the founders of the term “crossover case,” and currently educates area attorneys on crossover issues.
What Exactly Is A Crossover Case?
In a crossover case, sometimes called a third-party liability claim, you may be able to pursue compensation from another negligent party in addition to workers’ compensation. Essentially, it means that someone other than your employer shared responsibility for your workplace accident.
Workers’ compensation only covers your medical expenses and lost wages during recovery. Filing a concurrent but separate personal injury claim means you can seek compensation for other damages, like emotional trauma, pain and suffering.
Recovering All Of The Compensation To Which You Are Entitled
Although there is no way to turn back the hands of time on your accident, we will assertively work to make you whole and healthy again through determined representation of your crossover case.
Recognized in 2009 with a certificate of appreciation from the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego for his crossover seminars, California lawyer Samuel Dagan has handled a variety of crossover situations, including:
- Slip-and-fall due to a cleaning company’s negligence
- Injury as a result of a medical device defect
- A work-related car accident caused by another driver
