Can I Sue My Employer?

If you have suffered a workplace injury, you may wonder if you have the right to sue your employer. The answer to this question is “no” in most cases. However, there are exceptions. Philadelphia attorney Jeffrey S. Gross offers a free initial consultation to evaluate your Bustleton or South Philly injury case and explain your options.

When You Can Sue Employers For Work-Related Accidents

In exchange for providing workers’ compensation benefits, employers in Bustleton and South Philadelphia are generally protected from being sued by employees for injuries suffered in workplace accidents, even in cases when the employer was negligent. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system and pays benefits regardless of fault.

However, Pennsylvania employers can be sued in cases of extreme negligence. An example of extreme negligence would be sending you into a work environment that contains known dangers without proper protection.

When You Can Sue Other Parties

Many accidents in the workplace are caused by the negligence of third parties. Third parties basically include anyone who does not work for your employer. Examples include:

Filing a personal injury claim allows you to collect compensation for damages not covered by workers’ compensation, including pain and suffering. Our lawyers will evaluate your case for third-party liability and help you negotiate the maximum recovery for both your workers’ compensation and personal injury claims.
