When an individual is injured while in the course of his employment, that person is normally limited to recovery under the Cape Town Workers Compensation Laws. However, there are certain exceptions to the exclusive Workers’ Compensation remedy, and we have represented many individuals who fit within one of the enumerated exceptions. Additionally, even if the claim against the employer is limited to Workers’ Compensation, there may be other avenues for recovery as to other wrongdoers.
This area of the law is extremely complex and cannot be adequately addressed in general terms on this website. However, if you have suffered a workplace injury and would like to learn more, please feel free to contact us.
