Representing Employers, Carriers & Third-Party Administrators
MSZL&M’s Worker’s Compensation Group represents Employers, Carriers, and Third Party Administrators only. Worker’s Compensation attorneys are continually in front of their Worker’s Compensation Judges and/or Referees, actively litigating and trying cases and arguing before Administrative Boards and Appeal Courts. Mediations are often a usual part of the Worker’s Compensation process.
Not only does the firm defend and actively litigate matters, but we also provide pre-litigation counsel, advice and insight to clients while handling claims. Counsel is designed to avoid litigation if possible. We regularly provide educational and claims training to our clients.
Worker’s Compensation claims, with the ever-rising cost of medical and indemnity/wage benefit, continue to become increasingly expensive. Worker’s Compensation claims and litigation are also increasingly complicated and sophisticated. We understand the exposure and work with our clients to directly cap or limit the exposure choosing the best available course. We actively investigate and pursue Worker’s Compensation Fraud cases where applicable.
Medicare Set Aside Issues
Medicare Set Aside issues must be considered in both litigated and un-litigated cases. What was once only an issue in Worker’s Compensation matters is now routine in liability matters as well. Our Worker’s Compensation attorneys have brought their knowledge of MSA issues to various practice groups. Our subrogation group is continually pursuing Worker’s Compensation liens, whether it be representing carrier/employer’s interest in Mediation or prosecuting lawsuits against responsible third-parties.
