Workers’ Compensation

Aggressively defending businesses and their insurance carriers in workers’ compensation cases.

Where Experience and
Tenacity Meet

BBDG has arguably one of the deepest and most talented workers’ compensation departments in Florida. Shareholder Robert Grace has practiced workers compensation law since 1993, and has served as the editorial consultant for Dubreuil’s Florida Workers’ Compensation Handbook (since 2011). BBDG is the sole Florida member of the exclusive National Workers Compensation Defense Network. Mr. Grace is a sought after speaker on workers compensation topics. Meanwhile, Robert Bleakley has represented employers with large deductible or SIR insurance policies, including professional sports teams, for over 20 years. Whether the goal is a swift, efficient, resolution of a legitimately injured employees’ injury claim or a methodical, grinding, and vigorous defense of a frivlous work place injury claim, BBDG’s workers compensation team will work to achieve justice for its clients.

The Team You Need

Workers’ compensation intended to immediately provide medical treatment and lost wages into the hands of an injured employee. Most of the time the system works exactly as intended. But sometimes people try to take advantage of a liberally designed benefit system. BBDG is committed to defending businesses and insurance carriers from workers’ compensation abuses.
