Workers Compensation

For more than 50 years, Roberts Perryman has provided legal services of the highest quality to insurers and employers in the areas of workers’ compensation and employment claims. Our lawyers take an aggressive approach to investigating and defending workers’ compensation claims. For example, initially every file is thoroughly evaluated for evidence of fraud or third-part liability. We are very sensitive to the frustration inherent in dealing with workers’ compensation claims. As a result we make the following promises in regard to your claims:

  • Early Evaluation. We promise to evaluate the claim immediately upon receipt. This enables you to set your reserves in a timely manner.
  • Reduced Litigation Expenses. We promise to look for every opportunity to reduce your defense costs. 
  • Closing Files. We promise to accelerate the closure of your files.
  • Communication. We promise that you will always be up to date on the status of your files. Frustration through lack of communication is not acceptable.
  • Creativity. We promise to approach each claim with creativity. There are no cookie-cutter defense tactics used here.
  • Results. We promise that we will work hard to achieve the best result.
