Our Approach To Workers' Compensation Defense Gets Results
The firm's lawyers take an assertive, even aggressive approach to workers' compensation defense. When evaluating a case, they look at every aspect of the events leading up to the accident, how the accident itself occurred, and the medical file. In particular, they look for evidence of fraud or third-party liability. They believe that, while an injured worker deserves the compensation to which he or she is entitled, insurers and employers should not have to pay a penny more than the claim merits.
