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. Workers' compensation benefits can still be significant, and we suggest you bring those claims with the help of an experienced workers' compensation attorney.
