Can You Sue Your Employer Instead of Collecting Workers’ Compensation?

In most circumstances, no. Workers’ compensation is usually the only legal remedy for an employee injured or sickened in the course of employment. The public policy behind workers’ compensation envisions a bargain between employers and employees. In this bargain, workers give up the right to sue their employers in court in exchange for the guaranty of workers’ compensation benefits. This reduces tension in the workplace by creating a predictable method for resolving employer-employee conflict.

While the majority of cases dealing with injury, sickness and death as a result of work will be handled through the workers’ compensation system, in some cases, you may be able to sue your employer instead. It’s vital to speak with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney about your situation if you think you have a case against your employer.
