Thad limits his practice in the area of workers’ compensation exclusively to representing employers and insurers, and he is retained to handle matters in all Louisiana workers’ compensation districts, including New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Alexandria, Monroe and Shreveport. He has handled the defense of hundreds of workers’ compensation claims, some of which begin on the date of the First Report of Injury, and other times after a suit is filed. Armed with a comprehensive understanding of workers’ compensation law and supported by the experience of countless depositions and hearings, Thad stands ready to take on representation of your most challenging, “never-say-settle” claims, just as much as he is prepared to help you close a routine, less dramatic one.
Team Concept in Practice
Employer representatives, adjusters and defense counsel are a three-person team who must communicate frequently and work hand-in-hand to bring about the desired results: effective medical treatment and the prompt, safe return of the claimant to gainful employment which leads to the closure of the claim.
Not all claimants are eager to play by the rules, though, so this three member team of employer representative, adjuster and defense counsel need to cooperate to shut down the claim with the tools provided by the workers’ compensation laws and regulations. Communication and cooperation are critical components to any successful conclusion of a claim.
