Doyle LLP Trial Lawyers has filed suit against BL Technology, Inc. (“BL Technology”) alleging discriminatory misconduct and retaliatory discharge following an on the job injury claim.
Our client, a loyal employee of BL Technology, was injured on the job on October 30, 2013. The injury required back surgery with a difficult and long recovery period. To add insult, and real further injury, BL Technology began taking discriminatory actions against Plaintiff culminating in wrongful firing following surgery.
The firing took place during the recovery period for the surgery, before Plaintiff was able to complete necessary treatment and receive clearance to return to work. This action left our client with difficult choices regarding further medical care and future prospects.
The wrongful firing as a result of an on the job injury is illegal in the state of Texas and entitles our client to actual, punitive, and exemplary damages. Plaintiff unfairly suffered unnecessary pain and suffering brought on by the actions of the Defendant. The laws protecting laborers workers’ compensation rights exist exactly for cases like this.
