As Workers' Compensation defense specialists, Laughlin,
Falbo, Levy & Moresi LLP traces its roots to the mid-1930s; this area
continues to be the largest part of the firm's practice.
Attorneys in this specialty represent insurance companies, self-insured employers and public agencies before the California Workers' Compensation Appeals Board, Courts of Appeal and Supreme Court. In addition, they represent employers in Serious and Willful Misconduct and Labor Code Section 132a actions.
They handle disputed workers' compensation claims through advice to clients, assistance in discovery, representation through all phases of litigation and negotiation of resolutions. They also assist in developing evidence that has led to prosecution for insurance fraud.
This field has grown more complex and technical in recent years with laws/statutes varying the practice from year to year. The firm's Workers Compensation lawyers conduct educational classes and seminars for clients and professional organizations. They are pleased to address individual companies on any subject in the field that may be of interest or about which they believe their staff should be better informed. These may include seminars on medical issues, as they relate to disability cases, or on legal issues, such as research and advocacy. They are also pleased to address recent appellate decisions in the workers' compensation field or any other topics that will assist our clients with compliance with their educational requirements.
