Practice/Industry Group Overview
Nexsen Pruet attorneys handle workers' compensation related matters in South Carolina and North Carolina.
Our attorneys have handled cases involving psychological stress, repetitive trauma, toxic exposures, sexual assaults, occupational lung diseases, brain injuries, heart attacks and, of course, the more common orthopedic injuries such as injuries to the back and the extremities.
We have assisted insurance carriers and self-insurers in obtaining recoveries from third parties, the Second Injury Fund and the Uninsured Employers' Fund. We have also advised clients regarding workers' compensation costs and rating issues.
Samual F. Painter is the author of two books on workers' compensation. One is in its third edition. The other is in its sixth. Russell T. Infinger was selected to give a presentation on recent changes in AMA Guides to the Southern Association of Workers' Compensation Administrators (SAWCA).
Examples of recent client updates on workers' compensation law are available on this website.
