The firm of TurThe firm of Turley Redmond Rosasco & Rosasco, L.L.P., has a solid record of success in New York workers’ comp hearings and appeals. Our attorneys have decades of experience successfully representing injured workers with their injury claims. It is for this reason that a majority of our current clients are referred by former satisfied clients.
Workers’ Compensation Hearings
Many workers’ compensation claims are denied or minimized by employers and their insurance carriers. This is often an effort solely to save them money and cause you so much misery that you are economically forced to return to work before you have fully recovered. They will often send you to one of their “hand-picked” doctors who will do a five-minute medical exam on you, which results in a severe reduction or termination of your benefits. The effect is that you can’t work, you can’t pay your bills, you can’t get the proper medical care you need to get better, and you feel compelled to return to work just to survive.
Turley Redmond Rosasco & Rosasco fights these types of insurance company tactics every day at hearings before judges at the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB). Our attorneys have handled thousands of WCB hearings over the past 25 years, including claim denials and emergency hearings to restore benefits. We know how to cross-examine witnesses, physicians and other defense experts to get them to tell the truth. We know what medical documentation is required and how to present it to a judge in order to turn your case around to win.
Workers’ Compensation Appeals
It is important from the start to hire a lawyer with the ability to take your case as far as necessary.
- If the law judge in your Workers’ Compensation Board hearing rules against you, we will appeal to a Board Panel of three WCB judges for reconsideration of that decision.
- If the Board Panel lets the decision stand, we can petition to the full Workers’ Compensation Board and/or the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court to reverse your decision.
Our attorneys know how to argue the points of law in claims and hearings to establish grounds for later appeal. Our Shirley workers’ compensation lawyers are skilled at preparing written briefs and presenting oral arguments in these technical cases. We are committed to giving injured workers the best chance of success in a complicated adversarial system.
