Who is Liable for my Injuries?

Workers compensation is designed to assist workers that have been injured, need medical treatment, and are unable to perform their work duties. In many instances, however, these benefits are not substantial enough to cover your losses. At Hanson & Mouri, our experienced Riverside premise liability attorneys will immediately determine if your case involves a third-party liability. If a third party is found to be liable, additional damages can be pursued through an injury claim or lawsuit. In many cases this can be a subcontractor, equipment manufacturer, or any individual or business whose negligence contributed to your injuries.
