Workers’ Compensation

The firm provides full-service representation in the defense of workers’ compensation matters in New York and New Jersey. We represent insurance carriers, third-party administrators, self-insured employers, as well as employers not covered by workers’ compensation insurance. The firm is well-versed in the intricacies of this practice and the stringent deadlines imposed on the insurance carriers by the Workers’ Compensation Board, especially in New York State.

To ensure the aggressive defense of these matters and to limit the exposure of work-related claims, we undertake a proactive approach from the inception of the claim.

Additionally, to ease the carrier’s burden, our firm helps to ensure that the filing deadlines are met and all of the carrier’s defenses are preserved in controverted matters. Specifically, at the client’s request, we file WCB forms, schedule IME’s, address matters relating to Medical Treatment Guidelines, as well as handle the appeals.

The firm understands that this area of law is a highly specialized and fast-paced. We, therefore, provide our clients with the most effective and strategic approach to litigation or settlement. The Sobel Pevzner, LLC. often holds seminars for our clients to advise on new updates in Workers’ Compensation law and to provide the support necessary in obtaining successful results and minimizing exposure.
