Help from a Coral Springs Workers’ Compensation Attorney
It’s hard enough to live in fear of being fired—but you shouldn’t have to worry about losing your job as well if you did the right thing. Unfortunately, that’s what many workers’ face across America every day, from workplace injuries to whistleblowing.
That was the case for one Coral Springs employee, who found himself out of a job shortly after reporting being sick from lead exposure that was caused by his Coral Springs-based employer. As such, he reported it to (OSHA) the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in order for an investigation to be conducted, but he was subsequently fired for alerting them. Consequently, he sued his former company over the wrongful termination and in order to receive lost wages and medical benefits through the Workers’ Compensation System. Fortunately in 2019, the company received a large fine and the parties resolved the litigation for a confidential settlement along with a cleanup of the contaminated shop areas so other people would not become sick.
