Worker’s Compensation

Employers are strictly liable to an employee who sustains injury in the course of their employment, without regard to negligence or fault. State and Federal statues provide for fixed awards to employees or their dependents in cases of employment related accidents, injuries and diseases. Typically, the workers’ compensation claim is the exclusive remedy, barring the employee from suing the employer directly for negligence unless the employer has engaged in intentional misconduct. The Burnett & Kastran Law Firm is committed to assisting any and all employees injured on the job with their workers’ compensation claims.
