Workers' Compensation

Keeping costs in check.

Husch Blackwell is committed to helping employers reduce the expenses associated with workers’ compensation claims. Our attorneys are skilled in investigation and defense techniques that assist employers in controlling costs. We develop strategies for reducing indemnity exposure, push applicant attorneys to quickly resolve cases, and aggressively negotiate unpaid medical expenses directly with the providers as a value-add. 

Our team counsels on termination and return-to-work decisions, resolves exposures with global settlements, and negotiates settlement agreements and general release of claims when an employee is terminated after a work injury. We understand and consider the interplay of all employment laws - including the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Older Workers Benefit Protection Act - when making recommendations for handling the primary workers’ compensation claim.
