Workers Compensation: Your Safety Net

You put your heart and soul into your job, so it seems only fair that you should be protected from harm while you’re there. Most good employers do go out of their way to provide safety training and equipment to keep their workers safe and protected from any hazards. Federal agencies, like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, also have standards in place for employers to follow to keep their workers safe. However, sometimes accidents happen anyway, and when they do, workers compensation is meant to be your safety net. Most of the time, if you follow your company’s procedures for filing a workers compensation claim, you’ll be paid with no trouble. However, I know from experience that it isn’t always that easy. I started this blog to help you learn what to do when your company or their insurance company denies your workers compensation claim.

The Legal Help You Need If Wrongly Accused Of Domestic Abuse

Domestic violence is a blight present in most modern societies. Although it has existed for a longtime, domestic violence wasn't as much as of an issue until recently. Indeed, statistics about its incidence rate are shocking and can be found in nearly any media outlet such as newspapers, TV news, and the Internet. Unlike what many people believe, domestic violence may occur between two unmarried people including a father and his child. If you've been accused of a domestic violence crime you never committed, please keep on reading this article.  

Some facts about domestic violence

While there are many people who become victims of domestic violence each year, many others suffer from the baseless domestic abuse accusations that are made against them. The only reason why you don't hear much about the latter group is because the medias mostly focus on the first category. And to be honest, the considerable number of those victims somewhat justifies the media attention they get.

Yet, this isn't a reason not to inform the public that nearly 700,000 Americans get arrested each year for domestic abuse crimes they never committed. For such people, finding help is a serious challenge. For example, the volume of online resources for wrongly accused men is almost null. Unless you're using the right combination of keywords, you're going to have a hard time finding websites of online activist groups focusing on people who are in your situation.

Common reasons behind the false reports

These include:

  • Jealousy-based retaliation
  • Scapegoating

Scapegoating typically results from the fear that a person who was attacked has towards their perpetrator. Because of their inability to confront their real abuser, the victim uses you or any other third-party as a cover-up.

While it's understandable that the victim might be in shock after going through such a horrific experience, their lies are completely wrong and can ruin someone else's life. Many of the individuals who are accused of a domestic violence crime for which they claim their innocence are breadwinners. When law enforcers show at their doorstep, they're handcuffed and put in jail until the investigation is complete. All this despite having little evidence.

Being wrongly accused of domestic abuse is one of the worst things that might happen to you since it usually comes with jail time and restraining orders. If you've found yourself in that situation, please contact a local domestic violence attorney (at who will protect your rights and shed light on the case.
