    You should be discussing this with your WC lawyer. Why do you feel the homeowner is liable beyond the scope of your employment?

    You need to identify the state, share the relevant facts, and clarify who the property owner is (whether it's your employer, your employer's landlord, or somebody else).

    Here are the basics.

    Your only recourse against your employer is workers compensation.

    If a third party (who is not your employer) was negligent and that negligence caused your injury you would have a cause of action against that third party.

    Whether those basics apply to your situation depends on your circumstances and state law.
