Foreign Voluntary Compensation Defense

Counsel from Trusted Tampa Employer Defense Attorneys

Foreign voluntary compensation is coverage employers can elect to provide their employees who travel overseas and may be exposed to health issues that standard workers' compensation does not cover. These claims are also unique as they often pres­ent complicated issues of jurisdiction. In fact, at­torneys representing injured workers covered by these policies oftentimes file claims in the wrong jurisdiction which usually creates a substantial expense for everyone involved. Employees in­jured overseas are usually covered under these “catch all” policies and there are always specific legal requirements in how these claims need to be handled and defended.

Having an attorney with this unique knowledge combined with simi­lar claims falling under other jurisdictions is an im­portant safeguard against improper claims filed by uneducated attorneys. Cristal∙Hanenian is well-versed in assessing these claims, determining where an employer's responsibilities fall, and, if necessary, defending them against inappropriate claims for benefits.

Do not confront these claims without a knowledgeable Tampa employer defense lawyer ready to protect your company's best interests. Call Cristal∙Hanenian at 888.857.2177 today.
