Our workers’ compensation attorneys concentrate their practice exclusively on the defense of employers, insurance carriers, self-insured corporations, third-party administrators, and claims servicing agencies. Our firm handles workers’ compensation defense litigation matters on a statewide basis. Our attorneys handle job-related injury claims from the initial investigation and counseling stage, and team members provide advice and recommendations on decisions regarding compensability, risk/benefit analysis and management, cost assessment and containment, and medical provider recommendations and management.
Our workers’ compensation attorneys have developed extensive negotiation skills, which they offer to clients in both alternative dispute resolution and in other negotiation settings.
Our attorneys routinely defend litigation claims in initial hearings before the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation, as well as appeals before the Appellate Division of the State Board of Workers’ Compensation and various Georgia state and appellate courts. A complement of partners, associates, paralegals, and support staff that are likewise dedicated to the efficient defense and management of workers’ compensation claims assist in this practice area.
In addition to the active defense of pending claims, our attorneys routinely provide in-house presentations and seminars for both insurance and corporate clients. These seminars often deal with recent and developing trends in workers’ compensation law and legislation, but can also be tailored to address the specific needs and concerns of the client in question, with particular emphasis on ways to avoid, minimize or manage on-the-job injuries and related litigation.
