Can I Sue My Employer?
In exchange for providing workers’ compensation, employers generally can’t be sued by their employees for injuries on the job. But there are exceptions. Even if you are unable to sue your employer, you may be able to sue another party that was responsible for your injury.
At Paris & Chaikin, PLLC, our construction accident lawyers represent injured carpenters, painters, ironworkers, electricians, plumbers, and other workers. No matter how you were injured, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. Our attorneys have recovered millions of dollars for injured workers.
We Can Reach Beyond Workers’ Compensation
Workers’ compensation provides benefits for workers who are injured on the job, regardless of who was at fault. However, workers’ compensation benefits are limited. If the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may have the right to seek additional compensation.
Employers, property owners, contractors, subcontractors, architects, equipment operators, and manufacturers all share responsibility for keeping job sites safe. If another party was negligent and caused you to be injured, it may be held liable for damages. Unlike workers’ compensation, which is limited, the civil justice system allows you to pursue unlimited damages, including money for loss of earnings potential and pain and suffering.
The U.S. offers a number of protections for construction workers, especially for those who work on ladders or scaffolds. Our construction accident lawyers will carefully review your accident and aggressively pursue a personal injury lawsuit against all parties that may be liable.
