Representative Matters

  • Professional experience is entirely in workers' compensation
  • Attend hearings before all levels of the Industrial Commission
  • Successfully defended a workers’ compensation claim against an auto maintenance company where the store manager caught an employee on fire as a result of horseplay. An investigation company was engaged to perform an accident reconstruction to show that the incident as alleged did not occur.
  • Assisted a client who was suspicious of dishonest behavior of a claimant in obtaining both the termination of temporary total compensation benefits and the settlement of this claim for a nominal dollar amount based on substantial surveillance of this claimant. This claimant was attempting to deceive his treating physicians that he was permanently and totally disabled and a large savings in claims costs resulted from these efforts.
  • Successfully defended an award of temporary trial compensation before the full Industrial Commission. It was established that the claimant's dismissal from employment while working restricted duty was cause for the reversal of the order awarding this compensation. A large over-payment of compensation was created and the claimant was barred from later applying for temporary trial compensation until he returned to the workforce.
  • A claim had been allowed against an out-of-state client prior to being represented by Roetzel & Andress. Documentation was prepared and submitted to the Industrial Commission that eventually resulted in the denial of this claim. Also, client testimony was prepared and presented to the Industrial Commission to establish that the claimant was an independent contractor and as such was not entitled to a workers’ compensation claim against our client.
