Friday, Eldredge & Clark has one of the few teams in Arkansas dedicated exclusively to the defense of Arkansas employers of all sizes in a wide variety of workers’ compensation cases, representing insured and self-insured companies as well as third-party administrations. Our attorneys practice before the Arkansas Workers’ Compensation Commission (AWCC) and appeals courts, including the Arkansas Supreme Court.
Focused on Clients
Our clients include some of the country’s largest insurance companies, third-party administrators, agricultural, hospital, and school district self-insured trusts. We represent clients before the state Insurance Department and state and appellate courts.
Focused on Services
Primarily we work to defend employers in workers' compensation cases. Our experience also extends to FELA and Longshoremen Act cases. When it is appropriate to do so, we collaborate with lawyers in the firm’s healthcare and tax practices, to provide the best and most complete guidance and representation from a full-service perspective. In addition to handling investigations and discovery on behalf of clients with regard to specific incidents alleged, building the case in order to successfully defend it, we advise clients on developing, documenting, and implementing effective policies and procedures in compliance with state and federal laws. Besides numerous hearings and appeals, our work has included mediations, negotiations, and all types of structured or lump-sum settlements.
Our workers’ compensation lawyers are frequently called upon to also provide training and education in a variety of forums.
Focused on our Team
We have one of the few teams in Arkansas dedicated exclusively to the defense of workers’ compensation claims, and our lawyers are recognized by their peers, as evidenced by their inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America, Mid-South Super Lawyers, and Top Lawyers by Corporate Counsel.
