Will pursuing a lawsuit for a construction accident injury jeopardize my rights to workers compensation?


It shouldn't. Workers compensation is a 'no-fault' form of insurance that is paid whether you caused the accident yourself, someone at your workplace caused the accident, or a combination of both led to your injury. Whenever a workplace injury occurs, investigating third-party liability for the injury is your right, and anyone who tells you differently is wrong.
