Wise Carter has developed an extensive practice representing self-insured employers and workers’ compensation carriers in all areas of workers’ compensation. Our practice includes appearances before administrative judges at evidentiary hearings and continuing representation through the appeal process from the Mississippi Workers’ Compensation Commission to Circuit Court, the Mississippi Court of Appeals and the Mississippi Supreme Court. In addition, the Firm routinely advises self-insured employers and workers’ compensation carriers on issues and problems arising daily in administering workers’ compensation claims. The Firm is experienced in representing employers and groups of employers applying for self-insured status with the Mississippi Workers’ Compensation Commission.
As part of our workers’ compensation practice, we often assist our clients with settlements involving complicated Medicare Set Aside trusts and negotiating with Medicare and Medicaid when those agencies seek reimbursement for conditional payments.
