Workers’ Compensation

Our goal is to help our clients develop a streamlined process for the handling of workers’ compensation injuries, from First Report to Final Judgment.   We believe that the best way to defend workers’ compensation claims is to prevent them.   However, employers cannot prevent all claims.  When a dispute arises, we take an aggressive approach in defending an employer’s interests.  In such cases, our practice involves claim investigation, mediation through the Department of Labor, defense of Requests for Assistance, litigation, and settlement negotiations, where appropriate.  We encourage employers to take an active role in preventing, and ultimately defending, workers’ compensation claims.  At Ensley, Baker and Shade, PLLC, we work hand-in-hand with employers and their HR staffs to reach the most favorable resolutions possible.
