At one time or another, virtually all employers must deal with an on-the-job injury. When a work-related injury is reported, the employer must investigate the injury to determine its validity.

This webinar will help any employer, regardless of size, identify questionable claims and determine which claims should be contested. It will give employers and their attorneys a road map for investigating the injury claim, deciding whether to contest the claim and developing evidence to defend it.
