Can I sue, the company I work for?

Saint Albans, WV |

Alright, this morning we were on a winter advisory. The roads were an Icy mess. I was sent a half an hour away in a company semi. When I got close to my destination the road was icy and I flipped the truck. I had preexisting back problems and was taken to the emergency room. This has made my back problems way worse. I will likely be terminated, because of policies they have involving a one wreck rule. I am wondering since I was on the clock and on the road during bad weather conditions can I sue the company I worked for.

As Mr. Lassen advised a Workers Compensation claim would be your best and maybe only avenue for recovery.
