Question:Can I sue my employer for a construction accident injury?
There is a lot of complexity in construction site accidents that take place in Georgia. Clients often have a lot of questions about if they are eligible to file a claim and who they can make the claim against. In the state of Georgia, as a general rule, you cannot bring a personal injury case against your employer. Your sole remedy with respect to your direct employer is workers’ compensation benefits. There are a lot of exceptions, however. For example, if the employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance, they may try to deny your rights. That is where we can help. We can pursue other avenues of litigation, such as against a general contractor, the owner of the property where the accident happened, or an equipment manufacturer.The best thing to do is schedule a free consultation with an attorney with experience and practice in this specific area of personal injury law. Contact our office and we will discuss the facts of your case and determine your best options.
