In an effort to protect our clients’ business, the attorneys at Domingo Elias & Vu will closely analyze the allegations and thoroughly investigate the facts and circumstances surrounding the injury to evaluate an employer’s potential financial exposure and identify legally sound defenses, including the possibility of serious and willful misconduct on the part of the employee. Serious and willful claims are often accompanied with claims of OSHA violations.
There are subtle but significant differences in the standards for establishing liability for S&W and OSHA claims and it is often critical that the defense of these claims be coordinated by counsel defending the OSHA claims and the S&W claim. A serious and willful misconduct case is complex and the stakes are much higher for the employer in question. We are dedicated to working efficiently and diligently in pursuit of the best outcome possible.
