It’s About Respect, Too
September 5, 2012
under Workers Compensation
Here’s an example. A recent client was in a work accident that led to a serious knee injury. Following the injury, his employer – a large corporation – played hardball and denied that it was to blame for the injury. The company’s work comp doctor gave him a 0% impairment of his knee. That means the company’s work compensation insurer wouldn’t pay for his injuries.
Our client was truly getting pushed around by a big, uncaring corporation. He was offered nothing for his injuries, and nothing in the way of a disability payment. In essence his employer said, ‘Too bad, so sad. You’re on your own.”
That’s just not right. Employers have an obligation to maintain a safe work environment. They also have an obligation – some might say a human duty – to take care of an employee if they are injured on the job.
So his Denver worker’s compensation attorney filed two claims: one for an injury and one for an occupational disease. It was a rough claim process, and our client’s employer fought tooth and nail against paying our client anything. It the end, though, he came away with a fair settlement for his injuries and suffering.
But more important, he was thrilled that he finally got the respect he deserved. And that makes it worth coming to the office every day.
