Practice/Industry Group Overview
Our highly skilled attorneys have successfully represented numerous clients in workers’ compensation litigation. At Goldberg Segalla, we keep abreast of even minor changes in interpretive language used by the courts, and we use it to our clients’ best advantage.
Since every workers’ compensation case is different and calls for unique litigation strategies, we participate with clients and carriers, as appropriate, to develop strategies tailor-made for each situation.
Our practice group has handled cases involving both major and minor injuries, in both the “accident” and “occupational disease” context, including, but by no means limited to:
- Slips and falls
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Hearing loss
- Psychological stress
- Cardiac events
We routinely practice before the New York Workers’ Compensation Board, and we are prepared to handle regular and trial hearings, testimony of claimants, employer witnesses and medical experts, stipulation settlement conferences, permanency determinations and §32 agreements.
We understand the priorities of self-insurers and the need to have matters resolved promptly and cost effectively. That is one reason why we have formed excellent working relationships with a number of experts, who can assist in developing defenses to various claims. Our significant experience in working with risk managers allows us to find creative solutions to obstacles and help our clients meet their objectives.
