The workers’ compensation system is designed to provide compensation for employees who are injured on the job. However, the employer still has the responsibility to maintain a safe work environment. If the employer fails to do so, it can be subject to OSHA fines, increased workers’ compensation insurance premiums, and employee lawsuits.
Sacks & Zolonz, LLP, has extensive experience defending clients accused of serious and willful misconduct. Depending on the specific circumstances of the case, there can be multiple defenses possible. The firm’s attorneys carefully examine all aspects of the case, hiring investigators and expert witnesses, if necessary.
Our goal in every case is to protect the rights and interests of our client, the employer, and to minimize any resulting fines or penalties – if not to achieve the employer’s vindication.
