The Wokers' Compensation Unit defends state agencies and institutions of higher education in workers' compensation matters. The Unit manages litigation from inception through hearings and appeals, including fully-contested claims, challenges to specific disability and medical benefits, penalty allegations, petitions to review, and cases with subrogation or employment-law issues. The Unit represents the Special Funds Unit of the Division of Workers' Compensation, and its Subsequent Injury Fund and Major Medical Insurance Fund. The attorneys provide day-to-day advice to the Special Funds Unit, Risk Management's Workers' Compensation Division, the state agencies, and to Broadspire, the state's third-party administrator, regarding workers' compensation law, liability exposure and settlements.
