Complex Compensability Disputes
Workers’ compensation defense attorneys committed to results
Disputes aren’t unusual in workers’ compensation claims. But some claims involve complex compensability issues that are difficult to resolve. Closing these cases can be a lengthy and expensive process. That’s why it’s important to have legal representation from an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.
Eller Tonnsen Bach, LLC represents insurance carriers, third party administrators, self-insured businesses and uninsured businesses in claims involving complex compensability disputes. We help clients navigate the legal process in North Carolina and South Carolina and work toward solutions that limit liability and manage costs.
Resolutions with measurable results
Claims involving complex compensability disputes are especially challenging. There may be changes in condition – claimants can suffer complications or setbacks in their recovery. There may be other factors impacting the claimant’s medical treatment. There may be multiple disputes that arise during the process.
Issues that complicate workers’ compensation claims include:
- The injury or illness is catastrophic, involving a prolonged hospitalization and recovery period.
- Other health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension or obesity can interfere with the claimant’s recovery from the compensable injury or illness.
- There is a dispute regarding the type or length of medical treatment.
- The claimant is seeking benefits related to stress, anxiety, depression or another mental health issue.
- The claimant has developed an addiction related to a pain management prescription.
Our attorneys are experienced in handling complex compensability disputes and can design a legal strategy that meets your needs. We thoroughly research the claim and gather information. As needed, we seek independent medical examinations, investigate the claimant’s medical history and depose medical experts.
We determine the best approach that can help you achieve a positive outcome. This may involve negotiating a settlement or using an alternative dispute resolution method such as mediation or arbitration. We can represent you at all hearings before the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission or North Carolina Industrial Commission. We are also prepared to litigate and can represent you in the court of appeals and the state Supreme Court.
