It is possible that an independent contractor can go after the employer to receive compensation for a workplace injury.
However, in some cases, an employer may have a worker under the wrong classification. In these circumstances, an independent contractor may be entitled to workers’ compensation. Under specific workers’ compensation laws, they may classify you as an employee rather than an independent contractor.
