Waldrop & Hall has represented businesses, industries and insurance carriers in workers’ compensation defense for decades. Though we have practiced primarily in the West Tennessee area, between Memphis and Nashville, we now handle cases not only there but also state wide. We have literally handled thousands of defense matters through traditional litigation, with both effective discovery and preparation as well as aggressive courtroom advocacy in all courts of West Tennessee. As the defense of workers’ compensation has moved into the required Benefit Review process, our attorneys have kept themselves trained and skilled in effective alternative dispute resolution process and worked with existing clients to formulate the most cost effective method of early resolution of claims, if possible. Our attorneys participate in seminars aimed at providing training and information for employers relating to workers’ compensa-tion cost containment, modified duty programs and compliance with the various state and federal laws applicable to the workers’ compensation system.
The attorneys who practice in the area of workers’ compensation defense bring a combined experience of well over 100 years. All have extensive connections to the West Tennessee area and are very familiar with the court systems and infrastructure of the area’s economy. We represent the largest private employer in Jackson-Madison County in matters of workers’ compensation and our experience runs the gamut of employers that large down to sole proprietors who we defend through their workers’ compensation insurance coverage. Regardless of the size of the business, our attorneys strive to provide “big” results through a comprehensive strategy of effective preparation and zealous representation. Cost effectiveness does not simply result from early settlement but rather from the proper combination of effective resolution of existing claims and conscious avoidance of future issues.
