Unlocking Hidden Value in Workers Compensation Cases

Unlocking Hidden Value in Workers Compensation Cases

Lebau & Neuworth attorney Richard Neuworth had the honor recently of making a special presentation to the Maryland Association of Justice (M.A.J.) on "Unlocking Hidden Value in Workers' Compensation Cases." The presentation focused on three key goals:

  • Increasing the value of existing workers compensation cases;
  • Showing how workers' compensation injuries and illnesses unlock many other claims that exist in a parallel universe alongside the workers' compensation case; and
  • Learning how to ask a few additional questions so that these additional claims may work for both you and your client's benefit.

Within the presentation to the M.A.J., Richard zeroed-in on the Key Issues in workers' compensation cases: Compensability; Average Weekly Wage; Medical Treatment and Bills; Temporary Total Disability; Permanent Partial Disability; Second Tier Cases; Serious Disability Cases; Permanent Total Cases; Subsequent Injury Fund Liability; and Vocational Rehabilitation.

Specifically, Richard went into great detail on various Parallel Universe of Claims with Workers' Compensation cases, featuring in-depth analysis for handling:

  • Social Security Disability and Workers' Compensation cases;
  • Federal and State Wage and Hour Laws and Workers' Compensation cases;
  • Tax Fraud and Workers' Compensation cases;
  • Discrimination and Workers' Compensation cases;
  • FMLA and Workers' Compensation cases;
  • Paid and Unpaid Sick Leave and Workers' Compensation cases;
  • Medicare Secondary Payer Act and Workers' Compensation cases;
  • COBRA and Workers' Compensation cases; and
  • Sexual Harassment, Me Too and Workers' Compensation cases.

The Maryland Association for Justice represents over 1,200 trial attorneys throughout the State of Maryland. The M.A.J. advocates for the preservation of the civil justice system, the protection of the rights of consumers and the education and professional development of its members. It is dedicated to improving the civil justice system through legislative advocacy and the professional development of attorneys who represent the injured.
