Workers' Compensation Discrimination

In West Virginia, workers who are injured on the job are often entitled to workers' compensation. Workers' compensation covers an employee's medical expenses and a portion of his or her income while he or she recovers. When a worker collects compensation from his or her employer, he or she forfeits the right to file a lawsuit against the employer.

While workers' compensation is beneficial to employees in many ways, employers are not always willing to accept that an employee needs financial assistance. In fact, some employers go so far as to retaliate against an employee for seeking workers' compensation. That, however, is against West Virginia labor laws.

If you have been mistreated or discriminated against because of a workers' compensation claim, we can help. At McQueen Davis PLLC, we have advocated for countless individuals in Huntington and throughout the state who have been victimized by workers' compensation discrimination.
