Worker's Compensation Defense
Strategic defense and litigation representation for a broad spectrum of clients throughout the State of Florida in matters ranging from the most direct to the most complex and detailed litigation, including matters involving death claims, subrogation matters, PTD claims, exposure and occupational hazard claims, guardianship matters in the industrial accident context, misrepresentation, the Heart & Lung Bill, and a host of other issues running the full gamut of workers’ compensation litigation.
Civil Litigation Defense
When it's a big, "bet the company" type case, you need skilled attorneys who are aggressive in representing your needs and understanding how the facts and the law work together to shape an outcome. Our team is constantly vigilant with regard to identifying how to handle civil litigation cases, from the largest case to those involving limited financial exposure but nevertheless setting bad precedent in the company and requiring aggressive handling as a result.
Maritime, Admiralty & Longshore
Is it truly Longshore? Often times, recognizing the potential to have a matter heard as a state workers compensation matter rather than a longshore, maritime or admiralty matter can mean all the difference in the world in terms of exposure to the employer and carrier. Our team of attorneys understands the nuances which tip a claim in one direction or another, and we aim to reduce exposure through many similar insightful means.
Wage & Hour litigation Defense
Wage & Hour cases are predominantly governed by complex federal and state laws and by their employment related nature, these cases frequently are intertwined with employment and workers compensation law matters. As a result, our skills and background uniquely position us to handle even the most complex wage & hour cases, while at the same time being mindful of possible related litigation matters.
Employment law covers a wide field of issues, ranging from discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, FMLA, and a host of other causes of action derived from the workplace employer/employee relationship. With our vast background in employment related matters, coupled with unique insight stemming from a comprehensive focus on workers compensation law, our team of attorneys will work to resolve any such litigation as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
Federal & State Subrogation
Perhaps one of the most costly areas of the law to overlook, and unfortunately one of the most overlooked areas of the law. Often times, recognizing the potential for subrogation early on can make a tremendous difference in terms of exposure. Knowing who can assert a subrogation claim (employer, carrier or employee), when, and how to assert a claim are vital areas of subrogation. Often overlooked and equally perilous are spoliation claims, failure to cooperate claims and others wherein subrogation is implicated.
