Workers' Compensation

When employers are faced with evaluating and, in appropriate instances, challenging claims for workers’ compensation, it is important to have the support of a legal team with expertise and experience in defending such claims. At Setliff Law, we handle all phases of workers’ compensation cases, from initial investigation through appeal. Our workers’ compensation attorneys have extensive experience defending claims that arise in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Virginia. Our attorneys defend workers’ compensation claims both for self-insured companies and on behalf of insurers, and our clients include a regional power company and national grocery store chains. Many of our clients call upon the firm for defense of both tort and workers’ compensation claims and appreciate the effectiveness and convenience of having all of their claims defense needs “under one roof.”

Of course, defense of claims is only one aspect of our relationship with workers’ compensation clients. In addition, our attorneys help educate employers to ensure compliance with applicable laws, create injury investigation checklists and procedures, and develop safety measures to prevent workplace injuries.
