"Friendly Advice" from Your Employer?

Remember that when you are injured on the job, you should second guess “friendly advice” from your employer.  Joey Hodgin has represented many clients who took the advice of their employer, only to be hurt by that advice later on down the road.  Employers will tell injured workers that they don’t have insurance, when in fact they do.  Employers will “encourage” people not to file claims because it will raise their premiums.  Employers will tell people to just use their health insurance.  Employers have even encouraged employees to quit instead of terminating them.  All of these recommendations from Employers were given under the guise that they were just trying to be honest and help the injured worker.  Some employers do the right thing.  Not all are bad.  But understand, when you have been injured on the job, your employer has an interest that is very adverse to yours and an injured worker should get a second opinion an anything told to them by their employer.
