Workers compensation claims present our clients with complex personnel and business problems that require an experienced and coordinated response.

Today’s workers’ compensation laws create a benefit system for insured workers that follow very specific statutory procedures. At Foley & Mansfield, our attorneys have the background to handle the most difficult of workers’ compensation issues. Whether the matter involves an employer, a self-insured employer, or a workers’ compensation liability insurer, Foley & Mansfield’s staff and lawyers are ready to address our clients’ needs.

Our lawyers have represented clients at various state administrative levels including settlement conferences, mediations, medical conferences, rehabilitation conferences, workers’ compensation hearings and appeals. We handle subrogation claims, and represent employers in Coverage B actions involving employer liability claims in a variety of third-party liability lawsuits including motor vehicle accidents, construction injuries, product liability accidents, and fires and explosions.

From claim inception and reporting to administrative agencies, through response and alternative dispute resolution – and ultimately through hearings and appeals – our attorneys have the necessary expertise to obtain a complete resolution of all claims in the workers comp arena. Our workers’ compensation practice also works closely with our Employment Law department to ensure that all the breadth of all potential employment-related claims are considered in a resolution plan.

We maintain a comprehensive database of reputable medical providers, IME physicians and vocational experts to assist in the defense of claims. Our paralegals and attorneys have a thorough understanding of and experience in working with complex medical records, and are well versed in the required medical jargon and classifications associated with worker’s compensation disability ratings.

We try to resolve all claims and try to do so in the most cost-effective manner to our clients. If trial is needed, the attorneys at Foley & Mansfield are equipped to provide a sterling defense.
