Can I Sue My Employer For A Workplace Injury?
You generally cannot sue your employer if you are injured at work, even if your employer was negligent. However, you may have other legal options.
At The Law Offices of Conti, Levy & Salerno, LLC, we are uniquely qualified to manage cases involving third-party personal injury claims and workers’ compensation. With decades of experience, we are committed to recovering the maximum compensation from all available sources for you.
What Are Your Options?
In Connecticut, workers’ comp generally renders you unable to pursue any sort of legal action against your employer. However, depending on your accident, there could be other options to consider, including:
- Suing a third party. If you were injured due to the actions or negligence of a third party, such as a vendor, contractor, property owner or someone else, you may be able to sue that party.
- Suing another driver. If driving is part of your job and you were injured in a collision where another driver was at fault, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against them.
- Failure to comply with workers’ comp. If your employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance, you may be able to take legal action.
Our experienced attorneys can help you pursue the options available to you.
