    What state are you in? We ask that for a reason.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

          Yes, if your injury does not fall under the WC laws for your state then you can file a civil suit but understand that the standard is very different. WC is a no fault system while a civil suit requires that your employer be negligent or have purposely caused the injury.
          I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
