If you’ve suffered an injury in the workplace, you may be under the impression that the only compensation that you’re entitled to receive has to come from your employer’s worker’s compensation insurance. However, there many situations in which you may be able to sue for damages as a result of your injury.
Worker’s compensation can provide you with money and benefits. However, these payments are often inadequate when it comes to paying for pain and suffering, future medical bills, and lost wages. Additionally, worker’s compensation does not grant punitive damages for unsafe and dangerous working conditions. Therefore, it is important for you to understand your legal rights to initiate a lawsuit outside of the worker’s compensation system.
