Attorney Justin Lawrence Wins at the Kentucky Supreme Court
Posted on Monday, February 22nd, 2016 at 3:21 pm
Attorney Justin Lawrence, founder of Lawrence & Associates Accident and Injury Lawyers, LLC, recently wrote an Amicus (or “Friend of the Court”) brief for the Kentucky AFL-CIO at the Kentucky Supreme Court. The brief concerned a Workers’ Compensation case in which the injured worker demanded full compensation for his injury and for lost income benefits stemming from the fact that his employer brought him back on a limited basis and then fired him. Lawrence & Associates Accident and Injury Lawyers, LLC is particularly happy that the Supreme Court adopted Justin’s argument that the employer bears the burden of proving why an employee is fired, rather than the prior rule of thumb which placed that burden on the employee, even if the employee was never told why he was fired!
