Employers today face the prospect of ever-increasing
workers' compensation premium and benefit payments. They must be prepared to handle
claims grounded on every conceivable theory.
Martin & Seibert, L.C. has
a specialized practice aimed at preventing workers' compensation problems before
they develop and in achieving the best possible result where litigation is unavoidable.
Unlike many other law firms, we treat workers' compensation as a specialized area
of the law, separate and apart from other work that the firm may be performing
for the client.
We provide day-to-day advice and services designed to reduce
costs and eliminate conflicts wherever possible. We advise clients on such issues
as medical, temporary total, permanent partial and permanent total disability
benefits, vocational rehabilitation, benefit and premium rates, investigations
and pre-employment and return-to-work physicals.
Our attorneys have the
medical background essential for the analysis and litigation of workers' compensation
claims and are trained to handle the full spectrum of claims arising from: occupational
injury, disease, pneumoconiosis, hearing loss, vocational rehabilitation, and
mental and sexual harassment. Martin & Seibert, L.C. maintains a solid working
relationship with the medical community for expert witness and consultation purposes.
