Workers Compensation and Tort Liability

In a recent case, a court held that an insurance carrier committed the intentional tort of acting in collusion with an employer to deprive an employee of workers compensation benefits. The employee was working in a warehouse when he sustained a broken ankle after falling from an order picker. He subsequently filed a workers compensation claim and began receiving workers compensation benefits from the employer’s insurance carrier.

Unbeknownst to the employee, the insurance carrier and the employer secretly agreed to discontinue benefit payments on the basis of a medical report that the employee was able to resume light work. After receiving notice of the cessation of his workers compensation benefits, the employee sued the employee and its workmens compensation carrier, seeking damages for pain and suffering due to lack of proper medical care, mental  anguish, emotional hardship on his familial relationship, and loss of wages. The employee’s suit was based on  tort law. In its motion for summary judgment, the insurance carrier argued that workers compensation law provided an exclusive remedy for the action, therefore the employee’s suit was barred. The court, however,  ruled in favor of the employee, awarding him damages and retroactive benefits.

If you have been hurt on the job, you should consult a workers compensation attorney to hear about your recovery options!
