Can I File a Lawsuit as an Employee with Workers’ Comp?
If you suffer an injury while working, workers' compensation should
cover all expenses and provide compensation for injuries. That doesn't
mean you can't take further legal action.
Even if you are a covered employee, you still may be entitled to bring
a lawsuit if:
- Your injury occurs while working on a ladder, a scaffold, or at any elevation
of a premises not owned by your employer
- Your injury results from an object falling on you from a ladder, scaffold,
or construction site at a premises not owned by your employer
- Your injury occurs due to a defective product, or as the result of the
negligence of another company / company’s employee at the job site
- You are a uniformed city employee such as a police officer, fire fighter,
or teacher who is exempt under a union contract
We Can Help You Prepare the Accident Report
If you hurt yourself on the job, you should prepare an accident report.
This is also known as a C-2. Filing this report is required in order for
you to receive your workers' compensation benefits. If possible, you
should also take pictures of the condition or injury, or have someone
take then on your behalf. Our team can file your accident report for you.
We do this by first gathering information about the incident such as:
- The name and contact information of the person who takes your complaint
- The names and contact information of any witnesses
- The exact address where the accident happened
- The contact information of the person who handles your workers' comp claims
