California state law mandates that every employer must purchase workers’ compensation insurance either from a licensed insurance company or through the State Compensation Insurance Fund (SCIF). When employers break this law, injured workers will have a more complicated legal claim than simply applying for workers’ compensation.
At Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P. , we are experienced in pursuing claims on behalf of injured workers of uninsured employers. We offer free initial consultations, and our cases are handled on a contingency basis, which means that you will not owe us attorneys’ fees unless we are successful in your claim.
If your employer was uninsured, you are still entitled to compensation. Our attorneys can assist you in identifying every potential source of recovery and take appropriate action to secure your rights and interests.Options for Obtaining Compensation
If you were injured or lost a loved one in the workplace of an uninsured employer, you may be able to receive benefits either through the SCIF or by filing a claim against your employer directly. We can help you assess your options and identify other potential sources of recovery. Our San Jose, California, attorneys are experienced with:
- Premises liability claims ;
- Third-party agencies and entity liability ;
- Product liability ; and
- Other sources of compensation.
If an employer is not insured, it is in violation of the California Labor Code and subject to a stop order that could close down business operations. If your employer does not have insurance, do not wait to begin pursuing an action to secure your rights or benefits. Our attorneys have the experience to help you with these complex legal issues.Contact Our California Work Injury Lawyers
