Can I sue my employer for a workplace injury in Augusta?
I had a lady call me recently who had been injured as a result of unsafe work conditions at her place of employment. She wanted to sue her employer in superior court in tort for unlimited damages. If you’re reading this, you may have similar questions. I’ll tell you what I told this lady.
You cannot sue your employer for tort in superior court for unlimited damages for work injuries sustained at work. All employers in the state of Georgia have workers’ comp immunity from lawsuits like these. They’re liable for workers’ compensation benefits, but they are not liable to direct employees in tort in superior court for unlimited damages.
