Hello. My name is Ty Wilson. I am a Savannah, Georgia workers’ compensation attorney practicing law in the State of Georgia and our topic for today is:
Can I sue anyone when I’ve been injured on the job.
I presume from this question they mean can I sue someone in a personal injury matter or as if it was a personal injury matter if I was injured on the job. If you have been injured on the job you cannot sue your employer or co‑worker for causing the injury that occurred on the job. You must file a workers’ compensation exclusive remedy rule. However, if there’s a third party or there can be proven that there’s a third party that was negligent and that was the cause of your injury; for example if you are say, an electrician and you’re driving to a job, so you’re on the job and somebody runs a red light and wrecks into you. Then you have what is known as a workers’ compensation claim and a third party personal injury claim which is something our office handles a lot of.
If you have further questions, specific questions about that we will ask that you reach out to a Savannah, Georgia Workers’ Compensation attorney or give our office a call at the number on the screen and we’ll be happy to address your questions as they come in as these matters are so often involved with specific facts that break down the details of what you can and cannot do and what your legal rights may be.
So we hope that you found this helpful and we hope that you’ll come check out our other videos and give us a call if you have any questions. Thank you.
