The firm represents several municipalities with respect to such claims. Additionally, the firm has successfully defended claims involving repetitive motion cases, toxic exposure cases, and occupational disease cases.

Neret, Finlay & Nguyen, LLP actively counsels our clients on issues dealing with return to work policies and Drug-Free Workplace Program requirements. We also regularly assist our clients in obtaining recovery of Workers’ Compensation liens from third party recovery agents and also assist our clients in obtaining reimbursements from the Special Disability Trust Fund.
The firm also counsels employers with general compliance requirements for Workers’ Compensation coverage. We represent employers when a Stop-Work Order has been issued by the Florida Department of Financial Services for alleged failure to secure payment of Workers’ Compensation. We defend employers when they are accused of misrepresenting or concealing employees’ duties to avoid proper classification for premium calculations and misrepresentation of payroll to reduce Workers’ Compensation premiums. We work expeditiously to have the Stop-Work Orders lifted.
