Leading Justice is a full-service marketing company working with law firms on a cash-buy basis to sign up fully qualified, fraud-free unsafe workplace cases. Here at Leading Justice, we can customize your firm’s COVID-19 hazardous workplace advertising needs and help you sign up cases via internal cash buys. Our clients only pay an agency fee to cover the cost of COVID-19 unsafe workplace advertising, plus a fee for each case we sign, and any data we generate that doesn’t qualify for the target campaign is evaluated to determine whether it qualifies for another type of claim. By using innovating approaches to target contacts specifically related to the coronavirus pandemic and unsafe or hazardous workplace claims, Leading Justice will increase your firm’s caseload. If you are interested in helping workers exposed to hazardous work conditions, our direct advertising strategies and extensive consumer reach at Leading Justice give you the competitive edge and confidence you need to allocate your full budget, knowing that your money is being used in the best way possible.
Each law firm we work with at Leading Justice plays an important role in determining how we categorize claims as qualified or not. And while our experience working with plaintiff law firms allows us to recognize a great case when we see one, we will customize our COVID-19 hazardous workplace intake specifications to the exact criteria you are seeking. So, if your firm has specific unsafe workplace qualifying case criteria you would like us to use, we can train our intake specialists to apply the criteria to each email and phone call they receive. By eliminating the middle man, Leading Justice offers clients the opportunity for internal cash buys of COVID-19 unsafe workplace data with no chance of fraud.
COVID-19 Unsafe Workplace Litigation
State and federal employment laws require employers across the United States to provide their employees with a safe work environment that is free from recognizable hazards that could put them at risk for serious injury, illness or death, including pathogens and infectious diseases like COVID-19. During the COVID-19 pandemic, that means employers must take reasonable precautions to protect employees from the novel coronavirus and provide them with the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) to minimize the spread of the virus. For agricultural workers, delivery drivers, warehouse workers and other essential workers, COVID-19 poses a serious risk to their health and safety and they have the right to report any safety violations that put them at unreasonable risk for the novel coronavirus without fear of discrimination or retaliation.
Workers who become aware of unsafe or unsanitary conditions in the workplace that may increase the COVID-19 threat are encouraged to first bring their concerns to their employer’s attention. If the employer fails to address the problem by correcting the hazard or unsafe condition, concerned workers have the right to file a complaint with the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the federal agency responsible for protecting employees from occupational exposure to safety hazards. In certain cases, an unsafe workplace lawsuit may be appropriate. In April 2020, a federal lawsuit was filed in Kansas City against Smithfield Foods, one of the biggest meat producers in the United States, seeking an injunction to force the company to comply with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and public health guidelines for combatting COVID-19. The lawsuit was filed by a plant worker and accused Smithfield of refusing to “change its practices in the face of this pandemic.” According to the lawsuit, the company failed to provide workers with sufficient PPE, discouraged them from taking sick leave, forced them to work shoulder to shoulder, failed to give them time to wash their hands and failed to implement a plan for COVID-19 testing.
