Damon M. Gruber chairs the firm’s rapidly growing Workers’ Compensation Practice Group. He has led the team since its inception, and over the past 15-plus years, has developed a cohesive workers’ compensation program that allows the group’s attorneys to partner with clients and proactively reduce the risk of workers’ injuries.
As part of his progressive practice, Damon has counseled clients extensively and has implemented firm-wide initiatives that assist companies with a wide range of matters, including opioid reduction, permanency awards, and return-to-work issues.
He and his team now serve as a partner to many national self-insured companies, including those in the construction, retail, trucking, and manufacturing industries. As the leader of the Workers’ Compensation group, Damon works closely with the firm’s other practice groups to ensure clients receive coordinated representation for all their legal needs.
His background in the field includes all aspects of the claims process, from providing initial handling recommendations to overseeing every stage of the litigation process. He also has extensive appellate experience in cases involving sports law, hearing loss, psychological stress, and insurance coverage issues.
