WHAT IS AN EMPLOYER FRAUD CASE?
The term “employer fraud” is rarely used or understand by many lawyers, but is the cause of action used against company's that act to prevent an employee from reporting their workplace injuries and obtaining medical treatment after their injuries. We have seen Texas employers engage in the following actions:
Tell workers not to seek medical care
Direct the workers to small/sub-par clinics
Threaten termination if workers seeks care
Tell doctors the employee is not hurt
Tell workers' comp the injury was not "at-work
Missclassify employees as independent contractors
ELEMENTS TO AN EMPLOYER FRAUD LAWSUIT
Houston Based Providing Statewide Assistance
To file a lawsuit, our lawyers show that your loved one suffered additional trauma, injuries, or economic impact as a result of the employer refusing to provide you medical benefits and entitlements. This type of lawsuit acts like a negligence claim, the attorney representing the injured party needs to prove the following:
Duty of Care: This refers to a legal obligation that requires an individual to exercise a reasonable level of care so as to prevent harm to others or additional harm.
Breach of Duty: An individual or entity may be considered negligent if they breach their duty of care or promised benefits under the employment contract (which sometimes is the workers' compensation contract).
Causation: The defendant’s negligence must have been directly responsible for the additional injury or damage that occurred.
Damages: For a victim to file a claim, the injury needs to have caused either economic or non-economic damages.
Working with a law firm that understands the best ways to navigate an employer fraud case lawsuit will put you in the best position to secure the maximum compensation possible. Our Texas lawyers we have experience handle these cases and regularly secure five and six-figure settlements against negligence companies.
