Worker’s Compensation Defense
Advisers and Advocates for Employers and Insurance Companies
At Weld Riley, our worker’s compensation defense attorneys represent employers and insurance carriers throughout the state, especially northwestern Wisconsin. Widely recognized as the premier worker’s compensation firm in the region, our highly experienced team is well versed in this complex and ever-changing area. Our attorneys have experience representing employers before the Department of Administration, Division of Hearings and Appeals, Office of Worker’s Compensation Hearings, Labor and Industry Review Commission, circuit courts, Court of Appeals, and Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Assisting Clients with Disputed Claims and Other Worker’s Compensation Matters
We provide thoughtful, experience-based advice and recommendations concerning compliance with the Wisconsin Worker’s Compensation Act, while handling all phases of worker’s compensation litigation—including hearings, dispute resolution, and appeals. In addition, we counsel employers and insurers on creative workplace approaches and strategies that may help them avoid or reduce future worker’s compensation claims.
Unlike many law firms, Weld Riley provides innovative strategies and solutions to all of our clients’ Medicare Secondary Payer Act issues, including preparing Medicare set-aside (MSA) submissions and negotiating Medicare conditional payments in-house, simplifying the process of resolving claims. As a comprehensive labor and employment law firm, we also provide a range of other legal services to employers.
