The firm's Workers’ Compensation Practice handles the defense of employers, carriers and self-insured corporations against claims arising from Industrial injuries or deaths. Members have litigated claims with dates of accident dating back as far as 1974.

The team has many years of experience defending Employers under the 1990, 1994, 2001 and 2003 revisions to Chapter 440 and is well versed in the intricacies of each. The firm's in depth knowledge of Chapter 440 goes hand in hand with its knowledge of the Florida Administrative Code, and specifically the 60Q rules. The firm has advised clients on compliance requirements and in issues regarding penalties assigned by the Florida Department of Financial Services arising from the failure to secure the required coverage.

The assigned team members provide clients with an aggressive defense intended to reduce a client's overall exposure and to encourage a reasonable and prompt resolution. We are well prepared to handle the most complex matters. Members of our team offer accredited seminars and have lectured at adjuster board certification courses.

We are also adept at defending employers facing employee direct claims alleging injury from substantial certainty, intentional tort and spoliation of evidence in third party claims.
