Worker’s Compensation

Every single attorney at Aplin & Ringsmuth, LLC has significant experience in handling all aspects of Wisconsin worker’s compensation matters. Our attorneys have represented clients in thousands of hearings, and are well-versed in the complexities of litigating worker’s compensation cases. We conduct an extremely thorough pre-hearing investigation in each case to ensure that our client is in the best position possible should the matter go to hearing.

Our worker’s compensation lawyers also have represented clients involved in uninsurable penalty claims within the Worker’s Compensation Act, such as claims for unreasonable refusal to rehire, and safety violation claims.

We have experience handling all workplace injuries and disability claims of all types, including soft-tissue injuries, broken bones, back and neck injuries, knee pain, shoulder injuries, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, chronic pain, head and brain injuries, and death claims. We handle all aspects of complicated worker’s compensation claims such as cases involving occupational work-place exposure, Medicare set-aside trusts, structured settlements, permanent and total disability claims, death claims, and medical malpractice.

We involve medical and vocational experts to help define the issues and present our client’s case. Our representation is based on thorough background checks of witnesses, meticulous examination of pertinent documents, and, of course, detailed and exhaustive preparation of witnesses and expert witnesses. We work hard to obtain fair and reasonable results for our clients based on their short and long-term best interests.
