We represent insurance carriers, self-insured employers, third party claim administrators, and employers before the Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Commission. 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.
Our approach in Connecticut
Within seven (7) days of referral, we provide your adjuster with a comprehensive legal action plan and budget, setting out the likely exposure, plan of action to get the case to close, analysis of any potential legal defenses, and identify the handling/trial attorney and paralegal assigned to the case. We provide you with any court- or venue- specific information, such as who the judge is, evaluation of the treating providers, best IME doctor to use, etc.
Who we are
All of our attorneys are 100% dedicated to defending worker’s compensation claims. While we do some associated general litigation (usually subrogation related to a workers’ compensation claims we handle) all LOIS attorneys focus their practice on workers’ compensation.
We have tried dozens of cases to conclusion this year in each of the courts we go to. We are aggressive in pursuing appeals and our practice has an above-average record on winning appeals.
