Making the determination whether you have a civil suit for Employer Negligence or a claim under worker’s compensation is not always clear to a person injured on the job. While generally speaking most injuries on the job will fall under the worker’s comp insurance protecting employers from being sued by employees, there are several exceptions to this law. If you have been injured on the job and your employer intentionally caused you harm, you are able to sue your negligent employer in civil court. Battery, assault, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraud, defamation, invasion of privacy, conversion, and trespassing are the most common intentional injuries sustained by employees. Whether the pain caused is physical, mental, or emotional, employees may have the right to sue their employer outside of worker’s comp in a civil court with the help of a St Louis employer negligence attorney.
