A workplace injury occurs in seconds. What happens after that can affect a company for years.An accident can expose an organization to costly liability.

The firm is a trusted advisor to many of America’s best-known corporations.

“We try and close cases as quickly as possible and always keep an eye on the legal spend.” – George Woolverton, co-president and firm manager

In practice since 1957, Stockwell, Harris, Woolverton & Fox is well-versed in every aspect of the employment relationship. The firm works with self-insured employers, insurance companies and third-party administrators. “We’re partners with risk management at all levels to help them make the most informed business decisions, whether they settle, litigate or follow some other course to resolve any kind of workers’ compensation case,” says George Woolverton, co-president and firm manager. “We’re a form of risk management for employers as well.”

The employment relationship, under California law, is a set of duties and obligations, including accommoda- tion for people hurt at work. While an employee who has been injured might not return to the same job, the employer must try to accommodate the person in some capacity. “There is crossover between workers’ compensation and accommodation. It’s all part of the bigger picture,” Woolverton says. “We work to resolve the entire employment picture.” (Read More)
