[GRAPHIC: Ask Super Lawyers, Who can you sue after a work injury in Pennsylvania?, Attorney Douglas J. Olcott responds, THOMSON REUTERS]

Douglas J. Olcott: If you’ve been injured in a work accident you may or may not have the right to sue a third party. If you’re injured in the course of your employment, even if it’s your own fault, you will have a claim for workers compensation for your injuries.

What we do is we also look to see was somebody else responsible for causing you to be injured at work? Were you using a piece of equipment that was faulty or defective? Did somebody else who may have been in the workplace, a third party, somebody making deliveries create a situation that caused you to be injured while you were doing your job for your employer?

If you’re injured in the work place you will have a claim for workers compensation benefits through your employer but you’ll also want to look to see if there may be a third party who is ultimately responsible for those injuries as well.
