At McConnaughhay, Coonrod, Pope, Weaver & Stern, P.A., the defense of workers' compensation claims has been a focal point of the firm's practice since its inception. Throughout the State of Florida, and extending into Georgia, we have long been at the forefront of workers' compensation law and continue to set the standard of excellence in the representation of employers and their insurance carriers.
Each of our offices is staffed by a group of attorneys with extensive litigation experience, who devote their practice exclusively to workers' compensation law. They are familiar not only with the statutes, but also with local judicial procedures, successfully representing clients before Judges of Compensation Claims, the District Courts of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Florida. Active in a variety of professional organizations, they stay abreast of the latest developments in the field.
There are many aspects to Workers Compensation Law other than the defense of Petitions filed by claimants and their attorneys. A significant part of our practice is also devoted to counseling clients and litigation in the following areas:
- Insurance Coverage
- Regulatory matters involving physician dispensing and medical provider reimbursement disputes
- Special Disability Trust Fund reimbursement
- Appellate practice
Our Firm takes a leading role in educating the business and insurance community on Workers' Compensation Law. This emphasis on education reflects out philosophy of serving clients, both inside and outside of a litigation setting. The Firm conducts education seminars, publishes a Workers Compensation Desk Manual and provides clients with a newsletter with updates on recent legislative, regulatory and judicial matters of importance.
