“If you get sick with COVID-19, is your employer liable? As businesses prepare to reopen, worker safety is a priority.”
Let’s face it, with only a small threat of money sanctions in place by the courts to dissuade frivolous lawsuits, anyone can sue for anything at any time. This means a cresting wave of litigation is on the horizon. Before litigation comes investigation and that is where we come in. If the employees of your client base file suit for negligence, our dedicated Liability Division is prepared to review the Employer Liability policy language, take recorded statements and follow your established pattern and process. They are conditioned to conduct the thorough, nonbiased investigations needed whenever a claim is submitted. We are here as an extension of your Liability team to field what may be larger than average claim volume.
Thank you for your continued partnership. Please let us know how we can help.
