It's the same tired excuse employers use when trying to fight having to pay rightful compensations to their injured employees.
"Assumption of Risk"...
You hear your employer use it, but what does it mean? In a nutshell...they argue that you, the employee, knew the workplace was dangerous, yet continued to work anyways. Thus, when an accident occurs, you, yourself, put you in that situation.
It's a bunch of nonsense. Why do they get to decide what qualifies as a dangerous workplace...and hey, here's a thought, why don't you, the employer, take all the steps & precautions possible to ensure that the workplace isn't dangerous.
We've dealt with difficult employers like this time and and time again...and we don't fall for their excuses and manipulations. We fight for you, the hard-working employee...the worker who was trying to their job properly, when an accident occurred.
Eric, Randy, and Sarah know how to navigate these waters to ensure you receive your full and rightful compensation, and we don't take one penny until you receive your compensation.
