Sometimes physicians, especially those in private practice, are faced with workers’ compensation lawsuits brought by one of their employees.
Typical cases include injuries or illnesses suffered while doing something on behalf of an employer or otherwise in the course of employment. Slips and falls, exposure to toxic gases, and other similar injuries fall under Workers’ Compensation liability.
We have found that many of these lawsuits brought by employees can be resolved and prevented from going to court. Especially in the case of frivolous cases, our legal team can pressure the plaintiff and plaintiff’s attorney to drop lawsuits before they reach points of harm to our physician members.
