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
