Worker’s Compensation Defense

Our primary focus is defending self-insured employers and insurance carriers in disputed worker’s compensation claims. We handle all aspects of claims including claims for indemnity and medical benefits, vocational retraining, and loss of earnings capacity benefits. We will work with you to help prevent claims for bad faith and late payment, or if they occur, assist in your defense. When an employee makes an unreasonable refusal to rehire or safety violation claims against you as an employer, we will defend your rights as well. We will continue to represent your interests should the decision need to be appealed, or can begin our representation by appealing the Department’s decision as well.

Employer Defense

Our firm also specializes in defending employers and their managers in employment litigation matters ranging from unemployment compensation hearings to complex discrimination claims.
In addition to litigation defense, we offer guidance in regulatory and compliance matters. We also advise clients on issues related to policy and handbook drafting. When it comes to compliance, we have you covered.
