Workers' Compensation

Melick & Porter counsel self-insured employers and insurance companies on a broad array of matters throughout the workers’ compensation process, from advice on claims upon filing through formal hearings and appeals. We value our client relationships and we serve as regional counsel to many of our clients. Our attorneys efficiently and effectively defend a high volume of routine workers’ compensation cases and are adept at handling claims presenting unique legal and evidentiary issues. The types of cases we handle include exposure to asbestos and other toxic substances, repetitive stress injuries, injuries with associated psychological trauma, and injuries involving disputes between successive insurers.

In addition to litigation defense, we also conduct risk management programs. We provide employers with advice and recommendations to help them reduce the likelihood of workplace injuries and minimize potential exposure. This proactive approach also helps clients be well-positioned in the event of litigation.
