Workers’ Compensation & Unemployment Compensation

Axley’s Workers’ Compensation defense attorneys deliver high quality and cost effective legal representation to insurance carriers and employers. Our attorneys work in the defense of primary workers’ compensation and penalty claims throughout Wisconsin. Our attorneys have earned the respect of their clients, peers, opposing counsel and administrative law judges. Axley attorneys have earned this respect based upon the manner and skill with which they present their clients’ defenses at hearings before the state of Wisconsin, Department of Workforce Development, Workers’ Compensation Division, and on appeals before the Labor and Industry Review Commission (LIRC) and the Wisconsin appellate courts.

Our attorneys understand the medical issues which most frequently arise in workers’ compensation matters. They have also successfully handled cases involving a wide variety of traumatic injuries and occupational diseases.

Axley has done extensive research regarding potential obligations of insurance carriers and employers under the Medicare Secondary Payer provisions of the Social Security Act in the context of full and final compromise agreements involving commutations of future medical benefits.

Given the frequent interplay among the Wisconsin Workers’ Compensation Act, the Federal and Wisconsin Family and Medical Leave Acts, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Wisconsin Fair Employment Act and the Madison Equal Opportunities Ordinance, many of our clients receive the added value of our Labor and Employment Practice Group’s substantial experience in coordinating and administering employee leaves of absences.

  • The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM)
  • The Labor Law section of the Wisconsin Bar Association
