LOIS Proves Claimant’s Testimony Not Credible, Wins Case

LOIS obtains disallowances for two traveling claims with separate dates of loss. Attorney Alexa Cintron was able to highlight key inconsistencies for each alleged accident, as the Claimant submitted contradictory C-3 forms alleging injury to different body sites in each file. The Claimant also withheld key information about prior accidents to his own doctors and failed to discuss specific facts about the alleged injuries with those doctors. Attorney Cintron engaged in a lengthy trial process, consisting of testimony from the claimant’s doctors, the claimant himself, and three employer witnesses. Ultimately, the claimant was found not credible, as his own testimony and the C-3 forms regarding his mechanism of injury were inconsistent with what the claimant reported to his employer and his physicians, which led to the disallowance of both claims.

New York Workers’ Compensation Defense at Lois Law Firm

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.
