When you enter your workplace, you should feel safe. You shouldn’t have to worry about being treated properly by your boss and coworkers. That’s why there are laws in place against workplace harassment so that workers can feel comfortable in their work environments, but unfortunately, some people break those laws. When you’ve been harassed at your job, you need to know what your options are.
At DiPiero Simmons McGinley & Bastress, we’re here to represent you after facing workplace harassment. One of our employment lawyers will ensure your rights are protected and the perpetrator of the harassment is held accountable for their actions.

When two vehicles collide, the drivers and passengers can all sustain serious injuries as well as property damage. The problem is that the stress that the accident puts on the bodies of the occupants can drive up adrenaline and put victims into shock, which masks any pain they might be feeling from injuries.
This can keep crash victims from seeking medical attention because they don’t think they’ve been hurt. When they finally do feel pain from the wreck, they might avoid getting treatment because they don’t realize it’s related to their accident, or they don’t think getting help would improve anything now. But really, the opposite is true.
