Learn About Employers Liability in Oregon
When Is My Employer At Fault?
Workers’ compensation is a "no-fault" legal system. You cannot sue your employer even though they may have caused your accident. If you are concerned about safety or health problems where you work, it is suggested that you speak with your employer. If your employer is doing things that are unsafe, you may file an OSHA complaint. You can submit your claim online by visiting osha.oregon.gov, or by calling the Central Administration office toll-free at 1-800-843-8086.
However, if your employer did not purchase workers’ compensation coverage, you have the right to sue them directly. Reach out to my office to discuss your options in-depth and learn more about what this process entails.
If Another Party is At Fault
If a party other than your employer is at fault for your injury, you have the right to bring a civil lawsuit against that party. To find out more about this option, schedule an appointment at my office, and we’ll discuss your situation in more detail.
