Pursuing Litigation Against At-fault Employers
Workers' compensation is designed to cover injured workers' lost wages and medical bills, no matter who caused the work-related accident. In exchange, injured workers give up their right to sue their employer for additional compensation.
Unfortunately, Oregon's workers' compensation statute sets an unreasonable standard of proof stating that a work-related accident or an occupational disease must be 51 percent work-related. No other state requires injured workers to meet such a high threshold.
To help protect workers' rights, Oregon allows injured workers to pursue a lawsuit against their employer, if their employer was at-fault but the workers' compensation threshold could not be proven. We offer an extensive background handling lawsuits against at-fault employers and proving that a work injury was one of the major contributing factors. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals with pre-existing conditions. We have the legal skills and tenacity to pursue litigation in state court against negligent employers for contributing to a work injury or an occupational disease.
