Typically, you can't collect WSIB and sue your employer - you can only do one or the other. There are certain scenarios in which, even if your employer has WSIB coverage, and you were injured at work, you can opt-out of WISB and sue instead, but you would have to contact a lawyer for a consultation to see if that option is available to you.
