Workers' compensation claims can create expense and uncertainty for any company. For many employers, a workers' compensation insurance provider will hire a lawyer to defend against a claim. There are situations, however, in which an employer will need to work directly with an attorney.
For example, when an employee files a claim of discrimination or retaliation, that claim is not covered under workers' compensation insurance. Employee claims of serious and willful misconduct may also expose an employer to substantial liability. The employer in these cases would be well-advised to hire an attorney to protect the business's interests.
When considering which lawyer to defend your company against a workers' compensation claim, understand that your lawyer's skill and experience matter a great deal. Since 1974, employers throughout California have placed their trust in Gray & Prouty, A Professional Law Corporation.
