Your Opponents Fight Very Hard – and Sometimes Unfairly – in a Workplace Accident Liability Case
In all non-subscriber and third-party workplace injury claims, defendants can have powerful insurance companies and lots of attorneys to oppose you. Or your employer will be “self-insured” or even worse, uninsured.
Non-subscribers are represented by insurance companies who have attorneys either on-staff or on permanent retainer. And they are very skilled at defending their insurance company clients from injured workers or surviving family members who try to sue them. Insurance companies are in the business of collecting high premiums and avoid paying claims. They confront and try to intimidate you from the start. But experienced work accident attorneys like those with our Law Firm know how they work and are skilled at turning away every trick they pull when trying to wiggle out of paying legitimate damages.
But, self-insured employers who are liable for workplace injuries, or those who have no insurance whatsoever pose many different, and pernicious problems altogether. They resort to anything that will work for them once an injured worker takes legal action to recover damages. Some of their tricks are shameful at best. Others are nothing but illegal.
You will likely deal with an officer of the self-insured company or maybe even directly with your employer if it is a small company. Either way, the income of whomever you deal with is certainly tied directly to company profits. Any damage amount paid to you for your trench collapse injury comes directly out of those profits. So by compensating you, your employer literally takes money out of his own pocket. We are rarely surprised when a sneaky, self-insured company officer uses any and all means to deny a trench cave-in injury claim in order to protect his company’s (and his personal) assets.
Self-insured or uninsured employers can deliberately dispose of evidence and sometimes even pay witnesses to “disappear.” Other times they’ll bribe or intimidate witnesses, even you: sometimes going so far as resorting to physical threats. This is why every time we represent a client against a self-insured company, the first thing we do is to file motions in court that prevents anyone with the company from behaving inappropriately against our clients. Sometimes these motions include a clear demand that they make no attempt to communicate with our clients in any way without one of our attorneys present.
