[VIDEO] Can You File a Personal Injury Claim Against Your Employer?

Hi, I’m attorney Andre’ Ramsay, your workers’ compensation attorney. Now, when you get injured at work, can you file a personal injury claim against your employer? The answer is no.</p.


That does not mean, however, that you can’t file a personal injury claim against a third party. Think about it.

I have a client who is a pizza delivery man. He was delivering pizza on his route. He gets rear-ended by the negligence of a third party. He has a workers’ compensation claim against his employer to get the income and medical benefits that he needs, but he also has a personal injury claim against the third party that struck his vehicle.

So you keep it separate. A lot of times you can have multiple claims deriving from the same injury. But again, to answer your question; against your employer, you cannot bring a personal injury claim against them. It’s very unfair but there are certain instances that we could try to find perhaps other claims that you may be able to bring against your employer, which is why you need to services of the Cochran Firm and myself.

So please, give us a call. Let’s discuss it. We will find all avenues of claims and all avenues for recoveries for you. Again, my name is Andre’ Ramsay and I’m the lawyer for the everyday worker.
