- A person who is injured at work cannot sue their employer; but may be able to sue a third party.
- For example, if a truck driver who is driving their truck for work is struck and injured by another vehicle, they have a workers compensation case for their injuries as well as grounds for a potential lawsuit against the other driver and the other vehicle’s owner.
- You cannot sue your employer for work-related injuries because that’s the purpose of workers compensation.
