Can you sue an employer rather than seek workers' comp?

Typically, when someone suffers an injury in the workplace, they cannot sue their employer -- even if the employer could and should have prevented it. One of the primary reasons that businesses have workers' compensation insurance is so that employees can receive compensation for injuries and illnesses without taking their employers to court.

Firefighters, occupational cancer and workers' compensation

People who don't have a firefighter in the family often assume that the most dangerous part of the job is fighting fires. However, the number of firefighters who die from cancer caused by their occupation may be as much as thirty times greater than the number who die in fires, according to Boston's fire chief. He says, "We have about 13 members right now who are battling various stages of cancers, active members. And we have a number of retirees in that fight."
