SERIOUS AND WILLFUL
According to California Labor Code Section 4553, an employer who is found to have caused an employee’s injury by their serious and deliberate misconduct/negligence is responsible to pay an amount equal to half of all benefits paid as a result of the injury, including temporary and permanent disability and physical/mental rehabilitation benefits. To receive an award in your workers’ compensation claim, the person injured must be able to prove that the employer’s conduct not only contributed to the accident but was also willful in nature. Without a strong and professional legal argument supported by evidence, it’s quite difficult to establish a serious and willful misconduct claim.
At Moorad, Clark and Stewart, we have the team and the experience to thoroughly investigate your willful misconduct case and uncover any misconduct committed by your employer. Since 1979, our team of legal professionals will do everything they can to ensure you receive the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve.
