When an employee is injured in this state, most employers have workers’ compensation insurance to provide compensation for the medical bills and time off work needed to recuperate from an injury. However, some employers do not have such workers’ compensation insurance, and as a result the employee may be provided with little or no compensation to pay these bills. In those cases an employee must bring a lawsuit and demonstrate that the employer was negligent in some way in order to obtain financial relief.
These issues are very complex and fact specific; thus, they require an attorney to review in order to determine if any compensation can be obtained. If you or a loved one has been injured or, God forbid, killed on the job, and the employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance, or if you have been wrongfully accused of negligence in this context, please fill out and send our email contact form. Also, please note that state law prohibits an employer from terminating or mistreating an employee because he or she was injured at work and filed a workers’ compensation claim.
