Can I sue my employer for an injury I received on the job?

Probably not.

Every state in the United States has a workers compensation law which provides that it is the only remedy against the employer for an injury on the job.

There are some exceptions to this workers’ compensation exclusivity rule if: 

-   a person is injured by someone other than a co-worker

-   a person is intentionally injured

-   a person is injured in activities outside the scope of normal employment duties

For a typical work-related injury, however, workers’ compensation is the only compensation which can be obtained from the injured worker’s employer.
