Course description

Contested Workers' Compensation Claims

Learn techniques to properly investigate and ensure workers compensation claims should be contested.

At some point, all employers must deal with an onthejob injury. When a workrelated injury is reported, the employer must investigate the injury to determine its validity. This course will help any employer identify questionable claims and determine which claims should be contested. It will give employers and their attorneys a road map for investigating the injury claim, deciding whether to contest the claim, and developing evidence to defend it. This material will also provide attorneys with helpful litigation techniques for defending workers compensation claims.
