Leaders In Workers' Compensation Defense

Dworkin, Chambers, Williams, York, Benson & Evans, P.C., was founded on workers' compensation defense. Since 1991, we have honed a program of cost-efficient case management and zealous courtroom advocacy to help clients contain their expenses. Based in Denver, we represent insurers, self-insured entities and third-party administrators throughout the state of Colorado.

We routinely advocate for clients at workers' comp hearings and appeals before the Office of Administrative Courts (OAC)and appellate courts. Our accomplished lawyers have focused knowledge in every facet of Colorado workers' compensation from the defense perspective, including:

  • Defending claim denials or benefit denials
  • Termination of claims
  • Advantageous settlement of claims
  • Determination opinions
  • Emergency rule hearings
  • Workers' comp subrogation
  • Recovery of offsets and overpayments

We commonly provide insurers and self-insureds with legal opinions on claims before they are contested or referred. Clients can then make informed cost-benefit decisions about how to proceed.

The Art And Science Of Workers' Comp Defense

Our deep familiarity with the nuances and ambiguities of the Colorado workers' compensation statutes gives our clients an edge in claim analysis and contested proceedings. We assign each case to an attorney who is knowledgeable about the specific issue(s) to avoid unnecessary duplication of services. As necessary, we involve other members of our legal team who have advanced expertise or trial acumen.

We understand that any one case or batch of claims does not exist in a vacuum. We defend our clients vigorously without burning bridges or compromising their goodwill, and we pride ourselves on the highest professional standards. Our lawyers communicate frequently with the Division of Workers' Compensation and we have earned the respect and cooperation of that office.

With more than 20 years of focused representation, we can confidently undertake large caseloads and the most complex disputes involving workers' compensation insurance. We offer a palette of billing options (hourly, contingency or hybrid) to customize our services to the needs of our clients.
