Company Steals Employee’s Health Insurance Payments

The Case:

Betty came to our attorneys in shock over her situation. She had been working for a company that had been deducting money from her paycheck each month to provide her with health insurance. It was not until she had a heart attack and underwent emergency bypass surgery that she learned the truth: the owners of the company were simply pocketing the money, and she had no medical insurance.

The Results:

Our attorneys filed suit against the owners, and were able to subsequently negotiate a settlement for her. This settlement made it possible for Betty to have her medical expenses paid, and receive additional compensation for her mental distress.
