An Aggressive Advocate, When You Need It Most.

Can I Sue My Employer?

Taking Legal Action After You Suffer A Work Site Injury

Pennsylvania laws require employers to provide workers’ compensation benefits to employees who suffer job-related injuries. These benefits are payable without regard to who was at fault for the accident. Pennsylvania’s “no-fault” benefits system can streamline the filing process for hurt workers.

However, there are drawbacks:

  • Benefits do not include compensation for pain and suffering, damages that can be included in a civil lawsuit settlement.
  • Benefits do not always provide adequate financial support for all work-related injuries.
  • Benefits may not cover lost wages for an indefinite period of time for severe injuries that prevent an employer from working in the future.

I am attorney Gregory Stapp. For over 20 years, I have helped injured workers obtain the full compensation they deserve. In some cases, that means filing a personal injury lawsuit when it is allowed under the law. In Pennsylvania, you generally can’t sue your employer for a work-related injury. However, if a third party caused your injury, you may be able to sue this party for damages beyond what workers’ compensation will pay.

When you retain my services, I will develop an aggressive strategy that identify parties responsible for their negligence and hold them accountable for these actions.

A qualified trial lawyer, I have filed suits against a variety of third parties, including:

  • Other drivers in motor vehicle accidents

Your particular claim may involve one or more of the following: workers’ compensation, third-party negligence and products liability. My firm is equipped to handle complex cases for construction workers, those employed in the oil and gas industry and others.
