Workers’ Compensation Defense

With a combined practice experience spanning more than 65 years, our attorneys M. Dan Caldwell and Kristi Bynum Funck are exceptionally equipped to handle any and all aspects of a workers’ compensation defense on behalf of employers, insurance carriers, third party administrators, and group self-insurance associations. We regularly appear before the Workers’ Compensation Court of Existing Claims as well as the Administrative Workers’ Compensation Commission, and are well versed in both systems currently in place in Oklahoma.

Prior to the inception of claim litigation, we can provide a variety of legal expertise including coverage opinions, compensability assessments, settlement evaluations, and completion of unrepresented settlements. In litigation, we provide a thorough and aggressive defense on behalf of our clients from start to finish.

Frequently, the issue of subrogation arises in workers’ compensation claims as a result of third party negligence. We stand ready to assist clients in negotiations involving protection of their subrogation interests and recoupment of funds.

Mr. Caldwell and Ms. Bynum-Funck both carry AV ratings from Martindale Hubbell, and have together built a practice with a respected reputation for high quality work at an exceptional value.
