Insured and Non-Insured Employers
Many employers provide workers’ compensation insurance for their workers when they suffer an on the job injury. If an employer carries workers’ compensation insurance, they are immune from liability in many instances. However, many more employers avoid the expense of insurance that would protect their workers. We know about these employers and will help you obtain compensation for your injuries if your employer is one of them.
As a result, thousands of injured workers lose their ability to work. They have no way to support themselves and their loved ones following an on the job injury. That is when you need legal representation to ensure that you are compensated for your on the job injury.
Trends of Illegal Activity
As the cost of workers’ compensation insurance rises, a disturbing number of companies act illegally, pressuring injured employees to hide their on the job injuries and to avoid making an insurance claim. Many employees who make a claim are harassed, discriminated against, and fired.
These practices are illegal and should not be allowed to continue. At THE WOTORSON FIRM, LLP,our workplace injury lawyers will vigorously defend your rights against any illegal practices that your employer uses.
Retaliation Against Whistleblowers
Many times, employers retaliate against honest workers who refuse to commit illegal or unsafe acts in the workplace. Many of these employees become “whistleblowers” when they report illegal conduct. There are laws against firing whistle-blowers, but many people are unaware of their rights. At THE WOTORSON FIRM, LLP, we will make you aware of those rights and serve as your advocate in protecting them.
