When employers evade liability, get an experienced lawyer

Everyone has an expectation of being safe in their workplace, regardless of where they are working. This means whether they are in the office space owned by a multinational company or on the road as part of a construction crew, employers are responsible for ensuring their employees are in a safe working environment.

Unfortunately, not all employers take this responsibility seriously. This means they either do not remove hazards from the workplace or they do not train and equip their employees to deal with workplace hazards. Either way, workers get injured in workplace and have no legal recourse as they have contracted away their right to file a personal injury lawsuit against their employer. Workers' compensation insurance is therefore their only option-insurance provided by the employer regardless of fault in the workplace accident that led to the injuries.

When an employee does get injured, employers often try to evade their responsibility of providing workers' compensation coverage by claiming various excuses, such as the treatment does not correspond to the injury or that the employee was not working at the time he or she was injured. This can become frustrating for an injured worker, as they require finances immediately to recover.

Lawyers at the Law Offices of Vincent J Scotto III understand and anticipate the tactics employers and insurance companies use to avoid paying workers' compensation to injured employees. We work with our clients and try to get them the compensation they deserve to get better. For more, visit our page.
