Can I sue my employer because they were at fault for my injury?

A: No, Workers’ compensation is a no fault system. This means that the injured worker does not have to prove someone else was at fault (it can be their own fault). But it also means that if the employer is at fault, you can only receive workers’ compensation benefits.
