I have a Workers’ Comp claim, can I also file a Personal Injury lawsuit?

Maybe. Generally, if someone was injured at work, that person’s exclusive remedy or course of action is to file a Workers’ Comp claim only. However, an exception arises when a “third party” (i.e. someone other than your employer or co-worker) is involved in causing your work injury. It is then possible to sue the third party in a personal injury lawsuit. But note, you still cannot sue your employer, only the third party involved.
