Our workers’ compensation group is skilled at handling all phases of a claim. From the initial investigation, we work with the employer and the claims representative to help control the risk including full involvement in the employment issues. We have developed many return-to-work policies that balance a workers’ compensation claim with the myriad employment law issues, regularly advise employers on how long to provide transitional duty, disciplining a workers’ compensation claimant on transitional duty, and the role of an independent medical examiner in ending transitional work.
Fredrikson’s workers’ compensation group practices throughout the upper Midwest in manufacturing, construction, healthcare and related fields.
The workplace is becoming more diverse, more regulated, more volatile.”
Our OSHA practice group handles all phases of investigations and citations in all state and federal jurisdictions. We have successfully resolved by settlement or litigation citations ranging from serious, willful, to failure to abate in fatalities, structural failure, alleged ergonomic violations, chemical exposures, to combustible dust issues. We work with clients in construction, manufacturing, healthcare, and general industry.
At Fredrikson, we work closely with the employers to ensure compliance with OSHA requirements, and when appropriate, challenge citations through trial if necessary.
