What are my legal options if I suffer an electrical shock injury on the job? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Worker’s compensation laws preclude you from filing a lawsuit against your own employer in most cases. However, if the injury was caused by the negligence of a third party, such as a subcontractor, you may be able to file a lawsuit against that entity. If a defective product was involved, a product liability¬†lawsuit is a possibility.
