Do I have a workplace injury lawsuit?

Unlike other accident cases, the ability to bring a workplace injury lawsuit depends on demonstrating that the accident was caused by the negligence of a party who isn’t your employer (i.e. a third party), and that the negligence resulted in a verifiable injury. If you are injured or a loved one is killed on the job and it is the employer’s fault, you can only seek workers’ compensation, and you can’t file a personal injury lawsuit. You must find a third party, such as an independent contractor, who is at fault in order to bring a lawsuit.

Also, in order to prove that you were injured, it will be necessary to produce medical records showing a doctor’s diagnosis and treatment of the injury. If you have been injured while working, see a doctor as soon as possible, and then speak with an experienced personal injury attorney to help you investigate the party who caused the injury. If a third party is at fault, you may be able to file a lawsuit and seek compensation from that third party.
