Can I File a Civil Action Outside of Workers Compensation

Whether a person can sue when they get hurt at work is very fact specific.  Kentucky has an "exclusive remedy" of workers compensation for those injured at work.  Sometimes if the injury is due to the actions of a third party, a person may have both a workers compensation and third party liability claim.  Sometimes though a third party is protected by being deemed an "up the ladder employer."  Persons hurt by actions of third parties should contact an attorney for both advice in regards to workers compensation and a civil action.  Whether such "exclusive remedy" and/or "up the ladder" laws apply are very fact specific and it is important to contact Gatlin Voelker PLLC to learn of your rights.
