Relationship Between Legal Counsel and Third-Party Administrator

Third-party administrators play an important role in helping employers with the day-to-day operations of their workers’ compensation claims and claim management.  In addition, many employers also choose to retain legal counsel to vigorously defend specific workers’ compensation cases.  When an employer engages both a third-party administrator and legal counsel on a matter, effective and timely communication is imperative to ensure that each party properly understands its respective role in the defense of the claim.

The workers’ compensation attorneys at Taft team up with third-party administrators daily to provide coordinated, cost-effective claims management.
