Third Party

"Third party" refers to a person or entity that is not directly involved in a legal dispute or claim, but may be responsible for or connected to the incident giving rise to the claim.

When making a personal injury claim, a third party may include a person or entity that has some responsibility for the accident, such as the manufacturer of a defective product or the owner of a property where an accident occurred.

As a claimant it may be possible to pursue a claim against a third party, in addition to or instead of the person or entity that is directly responsible for the accident.

For example, if you were involved in a car accident and the driver of the other vehicle was at fault, but the accident was caused by a defect in the vehicle, it may be possible to pursue a claim against the manufacturer of the vehicle.

Your solicitor will be able to advise you on the possibility of pursuing a claim against a third party and guide you through the process.
