Stevens & Lee has extensive experience in navigating the complexities of workers’ compensation claims for over 30 years. We represent employers and insurance companies in all aspects of injury claims, including post-accident investigations, defense of claim petitions and devising strategies to dispense of claims quickly and cost-efficiently.
Because of the potential liability associated with workers’ compensation claims, we take a proactive role in assisting our clients to manage risks. This has included assisting many companies in the creation of programs, such as light duty programs, that are both economically sound for our clients and beneficial in reducing benefit payments. We also actively pursue means to reduce the value of each claim if settlement is a valid alternative and continued employment is not possible.
Because other labor laws frequently impact how a workers’ compensation case is handled, our in-depth knowledge of the labor and employment landscape enables us to consider the impact of such laws prior to implementing a plan.
