Can I Sue My Employer?
Almost always, the answer is “No.” In exchange for your employer paying workers’ compensation benefits (wage losses and/or medical expenses), you give up your right to sue your employer, even if your injury may have been caused by your employer’s or a co-worker’s negligence.
If your employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance and is not self-insured, you can still sue for damages. However, it is rare that an employer would not be insured or self-insured. If your work injury was caused by a third party, you may have the right to sue the third party. Just click here for more information.
