Woods Fuller attorneys represent numerous companies and individuals in this specialized field. Effective representation requires that attorneys have a strong working knowledge of the relevant statutes and authorities governing whether the claim is old or new. Our lawyers work with both insurers and self-insured employers throughout the State of South Dakota to analyze claims and consult on the fair and reasonable settlement value for workers’ compensation claims. Similarly, when an injured worker needs help, Woods Fuller attorneys are ready. If a claim cannot be reasonably resolved, we have been highly successful presenting our client’s cases to the courts.
An unrepresented worker’s compensation carrier settling its lien interest in a claimant’s action against a third-party tortfeasor runs a risk of not getting full value out of its statutory lien. Our workers’ compensation lawyers have the expertise necessary to guard the interests of insurers and self-insured employers in the course of a claimant’s settlement with the tortfeasor.
Old cases, run off claims and the like require technical insight and experience. Woods Fuller attorneys are accustomed to advising insurers and third party administrators on the strategies available to conclude such files favorably. Call or write us with your questions.
