Mullen & Filippi represents and advises employers, insurance carriers, and third party administrators in matters arising from workplace injuries. The Firm represents a variety of public entities and provides insight on issues of disability involving public employees and the relationship with the Public Employees Retirement System and or County Retirement Act of 1937. For all types of employers, representation by the Firm allows our clients access to the expert consulting and litigation services – including expert medical consultants, vocational rehabilitation, injury prevention and risk management consultants – necessary to comply with current law and successfully defend against claims.
Workers’ Compensation defense law is an area of practice that is dynamic: subject to frequent statutory and regulatory changes, especially in recent years. Our attorneys’ close scrutiny of such developments is complimented by their wealth of experience. We believe providing our clients’ reliable representation requires thorough preparation.
Workers’ Compensation practice requires thorough knowledge of both the applicable law and the special procedures governing claim litigation, and as a result, the State of California has designated Workers’ Compensation as an area in which a State certification of practice specialization can be obtained. Many of the Firm’s attorneys have undergone the rigorous State certification examination process and have obtained the designation of “certified specialist” in Workers’ Compensation.
