Independent Contractor or Not? Harrisburg Workers Comp Lawyer Explains

There are times when employers and insurance carriers will rigorously defend themselves to avoid paying workers’ compensation claims. That is exactly what happened with one of the clients of the law firm of Calhoon and Kaminsky P.C. It was a recent case that involved a 19-year-old who worked at a skateboarding park. For many years, the employer’s position had been that people who came to work at his camp where considered independent contractors. He would go as far as having employees sign a form stating they were independent contractors. In reality, under the law they should have been treated as employees. Harrisburg workers’ comp lawyer Deborah Packer filed a claims petition for this workers’ compensation case and was successful in helping him obtain compensation. In this video clip, Ms. Packer discusses this case and talks about how it felt good being able to help this young man, especially since his employer and the insurance carrier were working so hard to deny his claim.
