Serious and willful claims are not covered by workers compensation insurance. A construction contractor employer needs immediate representation to limit its liability.
Serious and Willful claims are codified in Labor Code § 4553, which states an employer that is found to have caused an employee’s injury by its “serious and willful misconduct” will be required to compensate the employee in full for the employee’s injuries, plus a penalty of one-half of the total amount of compensation to which the employee is entitled. This includes all temporary and permanent disability, medical and vocational rehabilitation benefits.

Plumtree & Associates understands the construction industry, the everyday workings of a construction business and the unique issues that only a construction contractor employer faces when confronted with workers compensation claims.
