While workers' compensation claims arise after an employee is injured on the job, successful defense of such claims begin earlier. Peters Kalail & Markakis is available to assist boards throughout the life cycle of a worker' compensation claim. We regularly provide general consultation on claims and case management, including reviewing documents associated with an injury and helping the administration develop a defense strategy. We also coordinate with third-party administrators and managed care organizations. Further, we represent school districts in administrative hearings before the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation and the Industrial Commission, and in court appeals. Last, we help to defend against additional allowances and negotiate settlements when warranted.
