Woods Rogers’s workers’ compensation attorneys defend clients in workers’ compensation litigation by collaborating with employers and insurance carriers to develop strategies to achieve the best possible resolution for the company. We work with insurance carriers, mutual associations, and self-insured employers offering legal defense strategies for both state and federal workers’ compensation claims.

Our goal is to achieve efficient claim resolution. Through a thorough case analysis, we determine the best strategy, whether that means engaging in negotiations, mediation, or the initiation of litigation.

When litigation is necessary, we offer an aggressive, detailed trial strategy. We adhere to individual client-generated reporting requirements, and we offer definitive, logical recommendations to our clients. We are responsive to our clients’ needs and maintain open communication throughout the claim assignment.

We offer a range of services for self-insured employers and insurance companies and their insureds, including litigation defense, risk management, and consulting services. We understand the importance of prompt attention to a claim, and the need for employers and insurance carriers to obtain counsel regarding the various duties and obligations owed under the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act.

We address intersecting issues arising from workers’ compensation statutes and other employment laws, including FMLA, ADA, NLRA, OSHA, and FLSA. As a result, we can provide a 360-degree approach to address all potential aspects of occupational health concerns.

We represent employers located or conducting business in Virginia, employers with employees traveling through or injured in Virginia, and Virginia-based employers conducting business across the country. In addition, the depth and experience of our practice extends beyond state workers’ compensation and employment issues. We are known in the maritime and shipbuilding industries for our experience and success under The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA), The Defense Base Act (DBA) and The Nonappropriated Fund Instrumentalities Act (NAFI).
