Can a Manager File For Workers Compensation?

Can a Manager File For Workers Compensation?

Managers and Supervisors Get Hurt on the Job Too!

In many companies, managers and supervisors have their compensation and bonus structure tied to the amount of accidents that occur on the job on their watch.  So naturally, these managers and supervisors will often discourage their charges from making workers’ compensation claims.  At the very least, they will try to avoid being the one that documents the injury so it won’t fall on them.  But, what happens when managers, or supervisors, get hurt on the job in North Carolina or South Carolina?

Unfortunately, in our experience, we see managers, or supervisors that either, do not report their own injuries for fear of reprisal, or try to work outside medical restrictions and just “tough” it out.  Then, they have a shocking realization when the company that they have been loyal to, is not loyal to them.  The district manager, or owner that they attended company business meetings with, and even considered a friend, no longer take their calls, or answers any emails or text messages.  The reality of the matter is that highly paid employees, such as managers, or supervisors, have high compensation rates that make their workers’ compensation cases very expensive to their company.  So, the company does what is in the best interest of the company, and quite often cuts their losses, and moves on from their loyal employee.  Don’t let this happen to you!

Our legal fee is a percentage of your case settlement.  Unlike domestic, or criminal, lawyers, who work on a nonrefundable retainer, there is only a legal fee if we are able to negotiate a settlement on your behalf.

Insurance companies set what is called a reserve for every claim. A reserve is simply the amount of money they think they are going to have to pay to settle your claim. Naturally, if an attorney is involved the reserve is generally set higher to account for the fact that the attorney can file a lawsuit on your behalf, and litigate the claim.

We are in the business of dealing with insurance companies, so let us talk to them on your behalf. Insurance adjusters are trained to help save their companies money, and sometimes this is at your expense. Let’s face it if an insurance company can find a way to not pay on a claim, they are going to do so. It’s good business for them and bad news for you.

Many people injured in automobile accidents or injured at work are afraid to get medical treatment because they are afraid that they are going to get stuck with the bill.  We can analyze your case for any risk of denial, and also refer you to chiropractic physicians that will not charge you upfront for their services, and will wait to get paid at the end of the case.

Whether you were on a motorcycle, were a pedestrian, or in a car, we can help you.  We handle rear-end collisions, head-on collisions, intersection, or right-of-way cases, drunk driving, or reckless driving cases, and every other type of automobile accident.  Also, if you were in an auto accident while on the job, we can take care of this for you.

Though our main office is in Charlotte, North Carolina, we represent people injured in automobile accidents that occur all over North Carolina, and South Carolina.

Calling Tippens & Zurosky as quickly as you can after you have been involved in an automobile accident, lets us file your claim with the insurance company, so you don’t have to speak with them.  The sooner we can get involved, the sooner we are able to protect your rights, preserve the evidence, and get you the medical treatment you need.
