The answer to your question is "maybe." To know for sure, I am going to need some additional information. Because the accident happened while you were at work, you are definitely entitled to Worker's Compensation benefits and it sounds as though you are receiving those. The next question is whether there may be a third party whose may have been negligent in causing your injuries. For example, if the strap failed, it is possible that you could sue the manufacturer of the strap for product liability. Was it your trailer? Perhaps the owner has some responsibility? Another example of third-party liability could be that the company that loaded your vehicle did it incorrectly, thereby resulting in your injury. In either case, you would have to prove that some other parties' negligence was the cause of your injuries. I would be more than happy to discuss your particular situation with you in person. I can be reached at 1-800-625-4710. There is never a fee unless we accept your case and are able to reach a settlement.
