Appellate Court Cases
Workers’ compensation defense attorneys experienced in litigation
Workers’ compensation claims are rarely straightforward. Resolving claims can be a lengthy and complicated process that sometimes involves the courts. That’s why it’s important to be represented by an experienced workers’ compensation defense attorney who can help you navigate the legal system.
Insurance carriers, third party administrators, self-insured businesses and uninsured businesses throughout North Carolina and South Carolina have depended on Eller Tonnsen Bach, LLC to resolve workers’ compensation claim disputes. We understand the impact a claim can have on your organization’s resources and work toward a resolution that meets your needs.
Workers’ compensation claims are disputed for many different reasons. There may a question about whether an injury or illness happened outside or work, if proper reporting procedures were followed, whether there was a preexisting condition, the extent of the injury and other issues. An employee who is denied benefits has the right to appeal the decision.
Prepared to represent your interests in court
Our firm can represent you at all levels of appeal before the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission and North Carolina Industrial Commission. If the appeal goes as far as commission review and does not result in a favorable outcome, the next step is to take the case to appellate court.
Our attorneys have litigation experience involving workers’ compensation claim disputes before the North Carolina Court of Appeals and South Carolina Court of Appeals. We know what appellate court judges consider when hearing cases involving workers’ compensation claims and are ready to represent you.
We take a thorough and determined approach to your workers’ compensation case and prepare cogent and compelling arguments that are built on facts and based on the law.
