1. You can sue your employer if their negligence caused your injury and your impairment is determined at 10% or more. After your impairment is assessed you can choose to accept the permanent impairment payment or to sue your employer for pain and suffering damages to a maximum of $110,000.00. Your choice cannot be altered once made.

2. You cannot sue for loss of earnings.

3. A common law settlement against your employer does not affect the insurer’s ongoing liability to pay your medical and like expenses and weekly payments for incapacity.
