“The Workers’ Compensation Law was enacted in1914, and was designed to be a compromise between employers and employees,” writes S. Philip Unwin, special counsel in Goldberg Segalla’s Workers’ Compensation Practice Group. “However, recent changes in the law have dramatically increased exposure for employers. … The only way to reduce exposure from workers’ compensation claims is by working with carrier and counsel from the start.”
In this article, Phil explores a number of critical questions employers should ask at the inception of a claim, to aid in a thorough investigation, along with practical advice for employers to mitigate their exposure in workers’ compensation claims.
