Tucker Arensberg has helped many employers defend and manage Workers’ Compensation claims. Current clients include municipalities, utilities, small businesses, big box stores, hospitals, nursing homes, and companies involved in light and heavy manufacturing. Most of our client contacts are human resource directors and risk management personnel. For almost all of our clients, Workers’ Compensation expenditures are out-of-pocket costs; they are not covered by insurance.
Tucker Arensberg has developed a distinct process for Workers’ Compensation claims that systematizes the handling of each case and maximizes the likelihood of a positive outcome for our clients.
Our unique approach to managing Workers’ comp claims includes:
- Meticulous review of medical records and claims
- Continuous attention to the ever-changing nature of claims and employment situations
- An aggressive approach to encouraging injured workers to return to the workforce in some capacity
This three-part approach has yielded successful results and a loyal client base.
We employ a full-time paralegal whose time is devoted to Workers’ Compensation matters, who often takes the lead in reviewing and analyzing medical records in order to minimize costs for our clients. Our approach allows clients to maximize the benefits of an independent medical review process and minimizes the long term costs associated with weak or incomplete medical opinions.
Because we handle so many of these matters, our level of experience in dealing directly with physicians gives us a proven edge in workers’ compensation litigation. We have taken thousands of medical and employee depositions.
Whether the case goes to a Workers’ Compensation judge, an Administrative Law judge, hearings with the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board or to state or federal court, you will be working with attorneys who have been in front of these agencies for decades.
