Forrest has experience representing both sides of workers’ compensation claims and litigation. Growing up in a construction family provided Forrest with firsthand experience to the workers’ compensation industry. Throughout his practice Forrest has worked with businesses and carriers to negotiate workers’ compensation coverage and represented employees making workers’ compensation claims or pursuing recovery through administrative litigation.
The workers’ compensation process is different than standard civil litigation, in that it is more legislatively streamlined. This results in a quicker turn around and generally more efficient conclusion for both the claimant and employer/carrier. Although the system is quicker, retaining counsel will still put either side in a better position to negotiate and secure the results they want and need moving forward.
