Workers' compensation costs remain a significant concern for employers. Managing these costs requires a solid front-end program and an aggressive claims management process.
On the front end, we assist clients in developing a comprehensive safety program that includes a procedure for the timely and thorough investigation of workplace injuries or illnesses when they occur.
When an administrative claim is filed with the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, we will aggressively defend your company's interest with the goal of minimizing the expense of the claim and returning an injured employee to productive employment as quickly as possible.
When a workers’ compensation claim is appealed into court, we represent the employer in the courtroom in an efficient and cost-effective fashion.
Workers’ compensation claims frequently give rise to other employee health issues that bring into play other federal and state employment laws, including the ADA, FMLA, GINA, and OSHA. In such cases, our workers’ compensation lawyers collaborate with our employment lawyers to assure a holistic approach to the handling of all aspects of an employee’s work-related health issues.
