Few names in the large and complex field of workers’ compensation law are as firmly associated with the spirit of advocacy and justice as Mark Vomacka Larson. Born in Los Angeles and raised in Camarillo, California, Larson’s early exposure to insurance abuses profoundly affected him. It helped him to dedicate his life to the practice of law and change. Equipped with a Juris Doctorate degree and a Bachelor of Business Marketing degree, he set out to defend workers’ rights.

Larson is acknowledged for his proficiency in workers’ compensation and complicated litigation. He has been named a partner at the esteemed Larson, Larson & Dauer, ALC, situated in Mission Hills, Los Angeles, California.  He has demonstrated his commitment to helping clients who have had catastrophic occupational injuries by taking on cases including traumatic brain injuries and amputations. His strategy goes beyond simple legal representation, giving each client specific attention and taking on strong opponents, such as incredibly influential insurance corporations.

While Larson focuses his practice on these catastrophic type injuries, he is also very passionate in defending and helping clients who have been bullied in the workplace.   

You Must Refuse to be Bullied at Work

Although productivity and respect for one another should be the norm at work, reality frequently indicates otherwise. Bullying at work is a severe problem that jeopardizes workers’ mental health and general well-being. People often find themselves defenseless, much like David did when he faced Goliath, who in this scenario, is the employer and/or insurance company.  However, it’s essential to realize that workers have legal safeguards in place, and those who face such difficult obstacles have options.

Bullying can take many different forms, including verbal abuse, intimidation, and exclusion. All of these can lead to a toxic work environment. Recognizing that such behavior is not just immoral, but frequently unlawful, is the first step in combating it. Employers are required by law to provide a safe workplace, which includes defending staff members against harassment of any kind.

All workplace bullying incidents should be thoroughly documented for those who are victims. All possible witnesses, dates, and times should be included in this record. These records are important for taking additional action, such as submitting a workers’ compensation claim or pursuing an employment law case.  Please recall that workers’ compensation claims can cover psychological harm caused by bullying, such as anxiety, sadness, or PTSD, even though it is typically linked to physical ailments.  Additionally, a common cause of action for this psychological harm can be made in employment law cases for intentional infliction of emotional distress.   

Please understand that employers are held responsible for upholding a safe workplace.  If the employer is ignoring your complaints of an unsafe workplace, you can often get their attention by filing a workers’ compensation claim.  Not only can workers’ compensation provide you with monetary compensation, but it also might lead to the employer implementing preventative measures inside the organization.  This can include anti-bullying policies and support and remedies for employees experiencing bullying in the workplace.  

 

It is understood that the procedure of filing a workers’ compensation claim can be intimidating and challenging.  This is especially the case when there has been bullying or other types of emotional and very personal type of injuries you are experiencing.  In these types of scenarios, it is critical that you seek the advice of experts, such as workers’ compensation attorneys.  You might also be recommended to speak with an employment law attorney.  

It is important to note that nobody should feel alone or unsupported, according to Mark Vomacka Larson. The entire foundation of a healthy work environment is contradicted by workplace bullying, which is why tackling it benefits the person as well as creating a more positive and productive work environment for everyone.

“We can help you defeat Goliath.”

In addition to upholding his promise to his clients, Mark Vomacka Larson helps to create a more equitable and just workplace culture by fighting for these rights and taking firm action against workplace bullying. For many people in the legal community and beyond, his unwavering pursuit of justice and commitment to his client’s well-being keep him shining as a source of optimism.
