Consequences That Accrue for Taking the Fifth in Workers Compensation Case

5th-amendment-workers-compensation-case | Gaylord & Nantais

Pleading the Fifth

Pleading the Fifth and not allowing yourself to be cross-examined can negate your eligibility to receive any type of compensation for your injuries. Worker’s Compensation laws are written to protect individuals who are injured in the workplace. You have the right to testify on your own behalf, just as your company has the right to ask you questions so that they can get to the bottom of what happened. Even if you feel that testifying may not be in your best interests, it is important that you listen to your attorney and allow them to help you get through the cross-examination.

Get the Compensation You Deserve!

Without your testimony, your company may not be required to provide you with fair compensation. They have the right to know what happened and pleading the fifth can prevent that from happening. If you want to be compensated for your injuries, you need to be able to answer their questions to the very best of your ability. Hiring a reputable and highly qualified Worker’s Compensation lawyer will ensure that your rights are protected at all times.

At Gaylord & Nantais, you can rely on their reputation as Worker’s Compensation attorneys to always have your best interest at heart! Don’t lose your eligibility for compensation by pleading the Fifth! Allow your lawyer to help you find the right answers so that your rights are fully protected and you get the compensation you deserve!
