Can I Sue My Employer For My Workrelated Injury

Generally speaking, you cannot sue your employer for your work-related injury because workers’ compensation is the “exclusive remedy” for injured workers in most cases.  If you are injured as a result of a reckless or intentional action by your employer, however, you may be able to sue your employer in court where you can request a full range of damages such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and even punitive damages.  It is rare that an injured worker can sue their employer in court, but if you believe that your injury was caused at least in part by a reckless or intentional action by your employer, we encourage you to contact an experienced Atlanta workers’ compensation attorney to discuss the legal remedies available to you.
