Learn techniques on how to properly investigate and ensure workersâ€™ compensation claims should be contested.
At one time for another, virtually all employers must deal with an on-the-job injury. When a work-related injury is reported, the employer must investigate the injury to determine its validity. This topic will help any employer, regardless of size, identify questionable claims and determine which claims should be contested. It will give employers and their attorneys a road map for investigating the injury claim, deciding whether to contest the claim and developing evidence to defend it. This material will also provide attorneys with helpful litigation techniques for defending workersâ€™ compensation claims.
- You will be able to discuss the background of the workersâ€™ compensation system.
- You will be able to review the initial claims analysis.
- You will be able to describe how to develop evidence for the defense.
