OSHA/Workers' Compensation Matters

Attorneys in the Labor & Employment Practice Group represent clients in administrative and judicial forums in the many types of matters which arise from workplace injuries and illnesses. A serious employee injury can result in a lawsuit, an OSHA complaint, and a workers’ compensation claim. The same injury may draw into question and interpretation the employer’s policies regarding leaves of absence and accommodation of disabilities. Giving competent advice in a workers’ compensation matter may require resolving issues regarding the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act and state handicap discrimination law. The extensive experience of the Labor & Employment Practice Group has prepared our attorneys to be responsive to the full gamut of potential issues. In addition to the experience of the Group’s attorneys, a nurse paralegal plays an active role in preparing for hearings and responding to pleadings and discovery requests.
