Workers’ Compensation Defense
Experienced attorneys serving North Carolina and South Carolina
When employees are injured on the job, they have the right to seek workers’ compensation benefits. But there are limits to these benefits and there may be issues concerning liability that impact the financial responsibility of employers and their insurers. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced workers’ compensation defense attorney on your side.
Eller Tonnsen Bach, LLC defends insurance carriers, third party administrators, self-insured businesses and uninsured businesses throughout North Carolina and South Carolina in workers’ compensation claims. Our attorneys routinely advise clients in every step of the process, from initial investigations of compensability through an initial hearing and the appeals process.
Experienced attorneys committed to favorable solutions
Workers’ compensation laws are complicated. There are strict rules and deadlines that must be followed. Our firm thoroughly reviews claims to verify eligibility and to ensure the financial responsibility of our clients does not exceed what is necessary. We work toward a resolution of each claim in a way that meets the needs of our clients.
Our firm helps clients resolve a wide range of workers’ compensation issues, including:
- Back injuries
- Head injuries
- Occupational disease claims
- Exposure claims
- Medical treatment disputes
- Employment classification disputes
- Litigation of denied claims
- Subrogation lien recovery
- Insurance coverage disputes
- Penalty hearing for uninsured employers
- Death claims
Our attorneys review initial claims to consider how the accident occurred, determine what type of treatment is necessary and calculate the exact benefits an injured employee should receive in accordance with state law. We also carefully monitor each claim and advise clients when benefits should be terminated.
In addition to initial claim assessment, we represent clients in mediation and at all hearings before the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission and North Carolina Industrial Commission. Our attorneys also handle appeals and litigation through every stage of the court process, up to and including the state Supreme Court.
Strategic, efficient and cost-effective
We take a very thorough and determined approach on behalf of clients. As needed, our legal team examines evidence, conducts site investigations and takes depositions of witnesses and medical experts. We then design and pursue a legal strategy that offers clients the best chance of a resolution that aligns with their goals – whether that’s through mediation, negotiation or litigation.
