Question:

Can I sue my employer for a workplace injury?

Answer:

Suing Your Employer for a Workplace InjuryI had a client recently who had been badly injured in a plant explosion call me about suing his employer for unsafe work practices. If you’re reading this, you may have a similar question. I’ll tell you what I shared with my client.

Under South Carolina law, you cannot sue your employer directly for unlimited damages in the circuit court in South Carolina. Your employer has workers’ compensation immunity from lawsuits. As a result, you cannot sue your direct employer for your injuries. You’re limited to workers’ compensation benefits from your direct employer.

If you have any questions about your South Carolina workers’ compensation case, we’d be happy to talk with you. Give us a call.
