You May Be Entitled to Compensation

COVID-19 Serious & Willful Misconduct Attorneys in Orange County

You May Be Entitled to Compensation

As your employer, the company you work for has a set of responsibilities they must meet. Employers’ responsibilities to their workers are greater than the payment of wages — they must also provide you with a safe working environment.

Accidents happen on the job. Although some incidents are truly just accidents, some worker injuries are a direct result of employer negligence. Typically, employers can avoid liability if one of their employees files a workers’ compensation claim. However, the standard exception to liability is waived if there is evidence of the employer’s serious and willful misconduct.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many employers are failing to protect their workers from contracting the virus. Workers who have been exposed to COVID-19 due to a lack of protection at their job may have a claim to hold their employer accountable and recover benefits. Contact our COVID-19 serious & willful misconduct lawyers in Orange County to learn how we can help you.

What is “Serious & Willful Misconduct”?

The term “serious & willful misconduct” defines instances in which an employer’s intentional actions cause harm to a worker. Although causing injury may not have been the employer’s intention, they have acted in a way that they knew was negligent and could potentially injure an employee. Employees who are injured because of their employer’s intentional actions and file a workers’ compensation claim may be entitled to additional benefits.

Some examples of serious & willful misconduct include:

  • Deliberately causing harm to an employee
  • Committing safety violations
  • Failing to provide proper training and protective equipment
  • Not assisting employees who have been injured

Workers’ Compensation Benefits May Be Available

Without the proper precautions in place, workers can be exposed to COVID-19 and potentially contract the virus. In addition to typical workers’ compensation benefits which provide coverage for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses, employees who have a serious and willful misconduct case may be able to recover punitive damages from their employer. Punitive damages differ from typical workers’ compensation benefits because rather than covering expenses, their payment is meant to serve as a consequence of the employer’s negligence.
