“Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.”

Thomas Jefferson

SIBTF claims have become a hot topic in recent years. The changes to the defense of apportionment under SB 899 made many applicant’s attorneys take a closer look at SIBTF.

If apportionment takes away some of a client’s permanent disability, SIBTF is sometimes a way of getting it back. But, SIBTF claims are more than a counterattack to apportionment. They are ways of obtaining additional compensation, sometimes significant compensation, for your clients.

SIBTF cases are a specialty within our already specialized area of workers’ compensation practice. These claims require knowledge of the law applicable to SIBTF claims and a litigation strategy that complements the client’s underlying workers’ compensation case.

Oftentimes, an applicant’s attorney is aware of SIBTF in general, but is unsure about how to proceed with these cases. Other lawyers feel that they do not have the time or resources to add these cases to their practice. Still others handle these cases but would like to improve their results.

Over the years, Eric has handled many SIBTF matters from start to finish, including trials. He can help you add this important specialty into your practice.

If you handle these cases already, Eric can help you maximize your results. You want to do the best for your clients. You do not want to leave money on the table for injured workers by not pursuing SIBTF claims.
