Courtney C. Kreutz
My approach to workers’ compensation defense is premised on approaching claims with a practical, business-like approach. Employers and their insurers have a right to expect their claims to be handled in a way that makes sense to them as business people and/or insurance professionals. This requires an open line of communication, which fosters my understanding of the client’s goals, and a mutual agreement about the most sensible way to achieve those goals.
