LOIS Attorney Prevails In Credibility Trial in New York

LOIS attorney Adam Lowenstein prevailed at trial resulting in a case disallowance. This was an unwitnessed slip and fall accident with alleged injuries to the right knee, left foot, left knee, neck, back and right shoulder.

The Independent Medical Evaluator (IME) conceded causal relationship. Despite the concessions, after thorough cross-examination of the claimant utilizing information provided while interviewing employer witnesses and reviewing medical records, we were able to show the Law Judge that the claimant’s story was not credible. This ultimately led to the disallowance of the claim.

We represent insurance carriers, self-insured employers, third party claim administrators, and employers before the New York State Workers' Compensation Board. We handle cases from cradle-to-grave. We want to be by your side, moving cases aggressively to closure from the start of litigation all the way through to settlement.

We only assign one attorney and one paralegal to each case. This means that your team members always have one contact to go to for any questions. We do not have 'hearing attorney' or a 'negotiation attorney' or 'appeal department' or anything else! All of our attorneys handle all of those roles – meaning cases are not 'passed around' as they move through the litigation process. Your risk professional or adjuster always knows who is assigned – because the attorney does not change.
