Workers' compensation is a highly specialized field of law — even a firm that handles general insurance defense may not be qualified. Our work injury defense practice dates back to 1967. We are always exploring new defense theories and perfecting the battle-tested ones. And we provide risk management counsel to avoid litigation and costly payouts.
The system gives the benefit of the doubt to the employee making a workers' comp claim. Do you know your rights as an employer to contest claims? We routinely use private investigators who catch "disabled" workers looking remarkably fit for leisure activities.
We represent businesses and insurance companies at the following NY Workers Compensation Board hearing locations:
Other Areas of Competence
