Can I Sue My Employer?

Almost always, the answer is "No." In exchange for your employer paying workers' compensation benefits (wage losses and/or medical expenses), you give up your right to sue your employer, even if your injury may have been caused by your employer's or a co-worker's negligence.

If your employer does not have workers' compensation insurance, and is not self-insured, you can still sue for damages, but it is rare that an employer would not be insured or self-insured. If your work injury was caused by a third party, you may have the right to sue the third party. Just click here for more information.

All workers' compensation matters are handled on a contingent fee basis, which means that you never pay a fee unless Dan Siegel gets you benefits or successfully prevents your employer from stopping your benefits.
