Workers’ Compensation

LeClairRyan’s full-service workers’ compensation team stands ready to aggressively defend clients across the country, and brings a unique approach to the practice designed to halt the steady increase in litigation costs associated with this line of coverage.

Our team of attorneys and staff spread across six states has significant experience in the management, design and implementation of litigation analytics and protocols. Working closely with carriers, TPAs, self-insureds and other clients of all types, the LeClairRyan workers’ compensation team strives to delivers effective, predictable, and measurably differentiated results to our clients.

Incentivizing our staff primarily based on quality and claim closure rather than billable hours, we focus first on how to avoid litigation, and when necessary, devising the best strategy to appropriately defend and resolve a case – always remaining cognizant of the balance between litigation costs and the client’s desired result. Our highly skilled lawyers have many years of experience defending employers and self-insured businesses of all sizes and in various industries, including retail and grocery, construction, agriculture, and employee staffing/leasing, among others, tailoring each representation to meet the needs of specific client. The team also includes former claims adjusters and supervisors from large national carriers, each with on-the-ground experience managing an ever-changing portfolio of P&C claims.

We approach every matter in a proactive manner and are consistently aggressive in response to workplace injury claims. Our attorneys see matters through from inception to conclusion, including claimant, witness and expert depositions, as well as investigation and argument before the court. We control litigation expense by ensuring timely analysis of the issues, communicating the value of the case to the client, and discussing options available to reduce exposure and costs while making recommendations as to the best course of action consistent with the goals of the client.

Ultimately, our pragmatic approach and hands-on assistance helps clients minimize their exposure to potential claims and keeps workers’ compensation litigation costs lower than the industry at large while ensuring employee productivity remains high.
