Worker’s Compensation Cases : The TLB Approach

Worker’s Compensation has always been the highlight of personal injury cases in the US. All kinds of jobs need respect and workers the dignity that they deserve. However, there are many jobs that are either extremely dangerous or awfully dirty. When we see them, we do thank workers for doing those type of work so that we don’t have to do them ourselves. However, it is important to make a list of those claims and make sure such workers are compensated well if any eventful situation arises.  This is not a simple task tough. Practicing them and ensuring adherence to the standards of worker’s compensation claims are complex and challenging.

In the US, the personal injury practice accounts for nearly $40 billion and just about all the personal injury law firms practice worker’s compensation. A trend has therefore started to outsource worker’s compensation cases to Legal Process Outsourcing companies based out of countries like India and other South Asian countries just like outsourcing of personal injury cases are done. TLB’s medico-legal team has worked extensively with the US worker’s compensation attorneys in the areas of medical care, temporary disability, permanent disability, supplemental job displacement, and death benefits.
