Workplace injury attorneys: no win, no fee lawyers in Madison Madison workers' compensation lawyers

Can I sue my employer for a workplace injury?

In most cases, no. Workers' compensation is often the only way you can receive money for your injuries. This can be discouraging for many employees who suddenly find themselves injured and unable to work. Even though you cannot "sue" your employer or co-workers, you do have the right to file a workers' compensation claim. Workers' comp. claims provide compensation for lost time benefits, medical expenses, and permanent disabilities.

Being injured while on the job means that you may be unable to work and earn your regular income.

Lost wages, denied worker’s compensation and mounting bills & stress can ruin you financially and emotionally. Fighting to receive your just compensation is not a battle you have to face alone.

Suing a third party in addition to your workers' compensation claim

There are often many factors contributing to your workplace injury. In addition to workers' compensation, you may also be able to sue a third party for contributing to your injury. Some common examples of when you're able to sue a third party for your workplace injury include:

  • Egregious conduct at work: If an employer or coworker deliberately caused your workplace injury, then you have the option to sue them in civil court or collect money from a state fund.
  • Defective product: If your injury was caused by machinery or a piece of equipment at work that is defective or had failed to work properly, then it's considered inherently dangerous. You have the option to sue the manufacturer of the product as a means of warning your business and other employees of the danger.
  • Toxic substance: If you become severely ill or injured due to exposure to toxic chemicals at work, you have the option of filing a complaint with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for not making your workplace safe from toxic exposure.
