Question: If you win a worksmans comp.case can you still sue the owner? And if you can how long do you have to file?
To find out about Workers Compensation, you can look through the Frequently Asked Questions on the Industrial Commission of Arizona's website.
Generally you can only sue the employer under two scenarios – first, if you opted out of workers’ compensation coverage, and second if the employer is uninsured and you choose to pursue the claim as a personal injury, rather than through the comp system. Barring those two scenarios, the employer is generally protected from suit in regards to the workers compensation injury.
