WORKERS’ COMPENSATION DEFENSE
Trans – Juris represents employers, self-insured funds, carriers and third party administrators in their defense of workers’ compensation claims throughout Florida. Our workers’ compensation defense practice encompasses the defense of these claims at both the trial and appellate levels, and Trans-Juris’s attorneys pride themselves on taking a proactive approach in the investigation and defense of their clients’ cases. We work hard to maintain open lines of communication for the timely and effective exchange of information, and to build relationships with the employers we represent, as well as their insurance providers.
While litigation is a primary function of this department, preventative counseling concerning various employment practices, and assistance with the drafting and implementation of drug free work place policies and return to work programs are also emphasized. Additionally, when it comes to handling retaliatory discharge claims and other employment related charges, our workers’ compensation practitioners work hand-in-hand with attorneys from our Employment and Labor Law and Commercial Litigation departments whenever the need arises.
