Repetitive Stress Injury Claims

Neck and back claim disallowed by the trial judge on March 18, 2019 as there was no causal relationship between the alleged injuries and the claimant’s work duties, due to the lack of distinctive features of her job duties which would have caused a repetitive stress injury. Likewise, there were no distinctive job duties described in her doctor’s testimony, and it was noted that the injuries could be degenerative in nature. Notably, the IME of the defense expert conceded neck and back repetitive trauma injuries.

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.
