Worker’s Comp Cases Don’t Have to be a Trial

When a workplace injury or illness strikes, you’ll be ready to advise your clients on their rights and responsibilities with help from the Worker’s Compensation Handbook.

It’s an essential resource for any lawyer who represents employees or employers in worker’s comp cases – including corporate counsel and practitioners of employment, personal injury, and insurance law.

The Handbook thoroughly explains the fundamentals of worker’s comp law and practice, including:

  • Liability
  • Injury definitions
  • Benefits
  • Penalties
  • Claims
  • Settlements
  • Appeals
  • DWD Worker’s Compensation Division policies

You’ll also find insightful analysis into common and not-so-common worker’s comp situations, such as:

  • How an injured worker becomes entitled to statutory benefits
  • How to proceed in an administrative hearing
  • What constitutes a prima facie case for defending against claims

Additional materials in the book’s appendices include:

  • Annotated text of the Worker’s Compensation Act
  • More than 30 sample forms
  • Checklists
  • Mileage rates
  • And much more!

Revised to keep you updated

The 2018-2019 supplement includes a number of important changes such as:

  • A Wisconsin Court of Appeals opinion dramatically altering interpretation of Wis. Stat. § 102.29(6)(b)1., causing the Wisconsin Legislature to amend it
  • A Wisconsin Supreme Court opinion on whether an employer’s absenteeism policy may be more restrictive than the statutory standard
  • Several regulations that are renumbered and no longer administered by the Department of Workforce Development
  • Updated computation information and rates for compensable injuries

It also includes updated appendixes as well as a new appendix on the transfer of certain worker’s compensation administrative functions to a new agency.
