Workers’ Compensation Defense

We handle all Workers’ Compensation claims from inception to the highest Court in the State of New York. Unlike many other Workers’ Compensation defense firms, we do not outsource our Appellate practice. All cases are handled by a workers’ compensation defense attorney with many years experience, who looks forward to working directly with you to obtain the best result possible for you or for your client.

Consistency

We strive to have the same experienced  workers’ compensation attorney handle your case from beginning to end. This helps us meet our goals to maintain continuity and reduce the costs of additional review for clients.

Hearings

We cover workers’ compensation defense hearings at the following New York facilities on a daily basis: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Hempstead, Hauppauge, Riverhead,
White Plains, New City, Peekskill, Poughkeepsie, Newburgh, and Monticello.

Preparation

Rather than prepare witnesses on the day of trial, a common practice in Workers’ Compensation defense, we will contact and prepare your witnesses well before the hearing date so that we may obtain all of the necessary information at the time of trial. We have found that this process significantly increases your chance of ultimate success.

Settlement

We have a designated department leading the charge to settle your Workers’ Compensation claims as quickly and at the least cost possible. We use innovative methods, including structured settlements, if that is what it takes to resolve the claim in its entirety.

Subrogation

Having the benefit of legal defense knowledge and expertise in the fields of No Fault Defense, Workers’ Compensation, and Liability, our firm is in a unique position to resolve your third party claims in such a way that we strive for a global settlement, thus relieving you of the necessity of continuing Workers’ Compensation payments. We often use this process to avoid MSA (Medicare Set-aside Arrangement) issues and deficiency compensation payments.

Our hourly rates are among the lowest in the Workers’ Compensation Defense industry. We also offer flat fee options as well as hybrid options combining the two. If you would like to learn more about our Workers’ Compensation Defense programs please contact us at clientservices@jonesjonesllc.com
