Workers’ Compensation Defense

Prepared to pursue a targeted litigation/resolution strategy for each claim

At our core, we resolve workers’ compensation claims. Our team works closely with clients to craft a targeted litigation/resolution strategy for each claim, and we do everything in our power to pursue that resolution with gusto.

We recognize the most efficient resolution will vary from claim to claim. We do not provide a cookie-cutter defense where we treat every claim the same, and we do not perform endless discovery and engage in endless litigation with no effort towards resolution. Instead, our approach is to resolve workers’ compensation claims in the most efficient manner possible to help achieve your desired result.

Whether your claim requires extensive discovery and litigation, needs to be settled with minimal legal expense, or needs to be appealed, our workers’ compensation attorneys will formulate a strategy unique to your needs.

We offer training and continuing education to all clients through on-site seminars, webinars, updates on changes in the law, and telephone consultations.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the selection of medical providers in a workers’ compensation case occur?

The process of selecting medical providers varies from state to state.

  • Generally in North and South Carolina, the carrier selects the medical provider from whom the claimant will receive treatment.
  • In Georgia, the employer is required to post a panel of physicians the injured employee can select from for treatment.
