Normally, when a worker suffers an on-the-job injury, Workers’ Compensation is their only recourse; the Worker’s Compensation law states that you cannot sue your employer for damages. However, there are cases where a lawsuit is possible and necessary:
- Defective, malfunctioning, or dangerous product – if this is the cause of your injury then it is possible to sue the manufacturer of that product and make them pay for your pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages. You can sue if the product does not work properly or if it is inherently dangerous and the manufacturer did not provide adequate warning.
Toxic substance injury – if you are rendered ill by a toxic substance such as asbestos, radium, or any dangerous chemicals then you can sue the maker of the toxic substance or the maker of the equipment that was supposed to protect against the toxic substance.
You can sue if the injuries are acute or latent: acute injuries happen immediately while latent injuries can happen months or years later, such as mesothelioma caused by asbestos. The Law Office of Jonathan E. Sureck will handle cases involving both acute and latent injuries.
- Intentional or egregious misconduct by an employer – if an employer intentionally or carelessly creates a dangerous situation that results in a workplace injury then the employee has a right to file a lawsuit.
The employer does not provide Workers’ Compensation – if your employer does not provide Workers’ Compensation and you are injured at the workplace then they can be sued. However, you need to prove that your employer was at fault for your injury.
The Law Office of Jonathan E. Sureck will help you prove that your employer is the cause of your workplace injury and make sure they provide the proper compensation.
- You are injured by a third party – if you are injured because of the negligence or misconduct of someone unaffiliated with your employer then you can sue that person to receive compensation.
