Can I sue my employer if I am injured at work?

Except in a few specific cases, you can't sue your employer for a workplace injury. Instead, you will receive workers compensation, which covers medical bills, time off, and any other costs incurred from your injury. However, if there is a third party involved that is responsible for your injuries, you may be able to sue them for compensation. For example, if  an electrician is hired by your employer and installs faulty wiring, he may be liable for any damage and injuries caused by his negligent work.
